Lilia Hansen and Moira Green from Community Futures and Russ Beerling from the Fort St. John Chamber met with Baptiste Marcere at the North Peace Cultural Centre Friday, part of a walk downtown to get an update from businesses and connect them with support services to help with pandemic recovery.
“We want to make sure business is aware of what government grants and training are out there, before the 11th hour when they’re desperate in need,” said Hansen.
Beerling said many businesses he's spoken with have been keeping steady or seeing increased business.
"COVID has been positive for a lot of people and it's made people more creative," he said. "We talked to some businesses last week that are going online and doing sales out of province now."
"They adapted with every change that the government put in place," he said. "The biggest thing we're hearing lots is supply. The supply chain is really hurting trying to get stock."
