Reopening Safely Grant
During this unprecedented pandemic, businesses had to adapt extremely quickly without any notice. Many businesses did not know if they had to shut down; if they stayed open, what to do, and more importantly, would customers even come in. Though businesses in the NWT have been more resilient than most in southern Canada, businesses here are hurting. Many will not see “business as usual” for at least another two years.
One of the reasons why business in the NWT has not been as impacted as the south is their creativity and ingenuity to stay open and keep their employees and customers safe and healthy.
These changes required businesses to spend unavailable funds for PPE equipment to reopen, which became an unanticipated expense after months of little to no revenue.
For that reason, together with our sponsors Rio Tinto and GNWT - ITI, the NWT Chamber created the Reopening Safely Grant.
- limited to a minimum of $500 and maximum of $1,000 per application
- one application per business
- based on receipts backdated to April/01/20
- reimbursement of 100% for members and 85% for non-members, less GST *membership with a community chamber is not membership with the NWT Chamber
- First come first serve, for a total of $58,000 in grants to be awarded
