ADVOCACY IN ACTION

COVID-19 Provincial Economic Stimulus – Letter to Minister of Finance

 
April 17, 2020


During these unprecedented times, the Whistler Chamber continues to work hard to advocate for YOU, our Members.

This week we sent a letter to Minister of Finance, Carole James, regarding the COVID-19 Provincial Economic Stimulus and the pressing issues facing Whistler Businesses.

We want to thank everyone who has shared their feedback with us, and taken the time to fill out the Pulse Check surveys with BC MindReader. The feedback we have been receiving has been instrumental in helping us to write this letter to the Minister of Finance.

We will continue to update you on what we are doing, and report back with any new developments. In the meantime, keep checking in on our COVID-19 Resources & Guidance for Whistler Businesses page, where you can find our recent advocacy work, recordings of our Advocacy in Action webinars, and Community of Practice blog posts, along side our carefully collated resources.
