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.READ THE LETTER
