Province creates team to support businesses impacted by COVID-19

A Business Response team has been created by the Saskatchewan government to support provincial  businesses dealing with the economic challenges COVID-19 has provided them.

“COVID-19 has caused significant economic hardships for businesses as we all work together to reduce the spread of this virus,” Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “We know businesses have questions and this response team will help them navigate this uncertain situation.”

The Ministry of Trade and Export Development is leading the team that will work with businesses to identify program supports available to them both provincially and federally.

“During this challenging time, it is critical that the government continue to take action to support both the health and safety of our citizens as well as the economy, businesses and workers of our province,” Harrison said.
