Thank you to ALL the business owners, operators, entrepreneurs, community leaders, local government and guest speakers who joined us on these virtual roundtable sessions over the past couple months!
We are taking a pause on these weekly sessions while businesses focus on their re-start plans, navigate new regulations and requirements and start to open their doors again. As questions arise please let us know; we’ll schedule our next session in a couple of weeks after Phase 3 of BC’s Restart Plan kicks in.
Co-hosted by Lower Columbia Initiatives Corp, Community Futures Greater Trail, and the Trail & District Chamber of Commerce, this forum allowed us to hear local business concerns and for participants to communicate what they were experiencing. It’s been very rewarding to share, learn and hear from our community stakeholders during this unprecedented time.

The Government of BC’s Restart Plan
BC’s Restart Plan lays out a series of steps that we will take together to protect people and ensure that our province can come back from COVID-19 stronger than before.
On May 5th, the Government of BC announced, a Careful Restart Plan for BC businesses. The plan will be a careful, step-by-step process to make sure our combined efforts and sacrifices are not squandered.
Some restrictions will be in place for a while. But some things will become a little easier, starting mid-May.
To keep moving forward, it’s going to take all of us – people, businesses and organizations – staying vigilant and following BC’s enhanced protocols, like cleaning more often and making spaces safer.
Let’s all do our part as we move forward, together.
