COVID-19 Resources

Covid-19 has interrupted your daily work-flow in ways no one could imagine a short time ago.  Just like us, you are continuing to run your business and it’s our pleasure to be here to lend you a hand. The staff at PIJAC Canada has been compiling a list of resources for business owners to help answer some important questions that may come up.  What follows is a three-part list to assist your navigation of employment issues; safety in the workplace, business support tools, and essential services by province.  Additions to the list will be made as new resources become available.  As you are our eyes and ears of the industry, we welcome you to also send us what you find.
