Message from Oromocto & Area Chamber of Commerce
With the onset of the unprecedented COVID-19 virus, it is understandable that both individuals and businesses are currently experiencing financial challenges, anxiety, and  stress.    The Chamber would like to help in any way that it can, from providing updated information links to members, answering or redirecting questions to appropriate sources, and assisting members whose businesses have been declared essential and/or who are offering curbside pickup / delivery of their products by promoting this information in our newsletters, on our website, and on our Facebook page.

Please do not hesitate to contact us either via email or by phone or phone at 506-446-6043 (messages will be checked once per day).

Please stay safe and healthy and remember that we are all in this together!

Message from Krista Ross, Fredericton Chamber of Commerce

Around the world and here at home, the past few weeks have extremely difficult for individuals, businesses and other organizations. To get through the current health and economic difficulties people have been coming together for a common purpose and I’ve certainly felt this spirit of collectiveness in our area.

I am writing today to let you know that we are with you and here for you through this crisis. Because of our full-time staff resources that have been able to work from home, we have produced and collected some resources and materials that may be useful to you.

If you are interested in hearing from us regularly, I would recommend that you sign up for our email list here – we have been sending out daily updates for the past three weeks and will continue to do so as long as new information continues to come in. We are particularly focused on clarifying and sharing information on support programs that have been announced and look forward to sharing application details as they become available.

Our COVID-19 Resource Page can be found here and includes an archive of our daily updates to members along with information about support programs, State of Emergency responsibilities, and much more.

We have also launched our Open, Operational and/or Offering help business directory. We are asking all local businesses that are open, operational in some capacity, and/or offering help to other businesses to fill out this brief form to help us populate the page and let the community know about your business.

We also share information via our social media vehicles (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram).

Finally, I would like to invite you to our upcoming events – which have been moved entirely online! We are offering a number of informational webinars (and sharing others) and later today we are testing out our very first ‘virtual networking’ event through Zoom! All our upcoming events can be found here.

I am also interested to hear how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting your business and any specific ways that the government can support you at this time.  Contact either myself or our Policy & Research Manager, Morgan Peters to share information or ask questions. / (506) 461-5165 / (506) 470-5593
