Small Business Resiliency Resources

The BC Chamber of Commerce has put together a live resource to support businesses across the province as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic on their road to recovery.


BC Chamber’s Regional Resource Guide for Small Business Resiliency: On the Road to Recovery

On July 22, 2021, the BC Chamber launched seven Regional Resource Guides for Small Business Resiliency, including one for the Mainland | Southwest.

These resource guides are tailor-made to support businesses in each of the seven economic regions of British Columbia as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic on their road to recovery, as set out in BC’s Restart plan.

In partnership with the provincial government’s Sector Labour Market Partnership Program (SLMP) and funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training, the Resource Guides are designed to house a broad mix of region-specific resources in one spot for easy reference and navigation. The Guides have been developed using data from the BC Chamber of Commerce Pulse Check surveys and with information collected in focus groups and from consultations with different sectors and industries from all economic regions of British Columbia.

The resources outlined in the Guides address core aspects of pandemic recovery including:

  • Health and Safety
  • Government programming
  • Sector-specific initiatives
  • Legal and regulatory requirements
  • How to reopen, maintain, pivot, or expand your business; and
  • Additional small business tools, including diversity and inclusion considerations.
