Since March 13, 2020, the Whitby Chamber of Commerce has been providing updated business-focused COVID-19 information straight to your mailbox. From March 2020 to March 2022 our intent was to ensure our business community had the information they needed to navigate; and you’ll see below links to all of the emails sent, close to 120! Even when the team was furloughed to 50% over the summer months, we continued to provide innovative programming, business support and partnerships for our members.
This webpage also served as an additional level of support, with links to Provincial Regulations & Guidelines, Financial Support, Reopening Toolkits, Access to PPE suppliers, Recovery Programs and Toolkits and more.
During the summer of 2021 we also joined forces with the Town of Whitby to deliver rapid testing kits to businesses.
Lastly, we’re very proud to have immediately come together as region to form the Durham Region Economic Recovery Task Force, which still meets regularly. The efforts demonstrated by uniting to serve our immediate and long-term needs were received very positively by our business community. The work continues!
