We are here to help Manitoba businesses navigate through this crisis
If you have questions, we have answers.
As the provincial government maneuvers to adapt to the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses must also quickly adjust their internal policies to reflect the new government mandates.
Irrespective of government announcements, businesses will need to make their own determinations as to whether, when and how they will open, reopen and/or close their physical workplaces, keeping in mind their duties to their employees and stakeholders.
We believe a strong economy benefits everyone in Manitoba — business, communities, families, and individuals. That’s why we brought together government and pillars of industry to help you in these uncertain times.
The partners that form the Manitoba Business Matters coalition have come together to provide tools and resources to Manitoba Businesses in real time, and on an ongoing basis, so that our province, our country and economy can emerge stronger.
