As we enter week 9 of the COVID-19 crisis, several provinces have taken small steps that mark the beginning of recovery and re-opening the economy. That's a glimpse of good news for the small businesses and agricultural producers that have been hit so devastatingly hard by this outbreak. While a return to normal may be months into the future, businesses and consumers are starting to adapt to a new normal that integrates proper health and safety practices with the realities and practicalities of day to day living.
An Update from Steven Ibbotson, President of FBC

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve, so does our
response. Since this unprecedented event began, we’ve had many
conversations with FBC Members and staff. We know how deeply some of you
are affected. Many of you are having to temporarily close your business,
lay off staff, or take other extraordinary measures. Others are
postponing travels, watching their savings take a significant hit, or
tending to a family member who has fallen ill. There’s a whole lot of
uncertainty in the world right now.
