Downtown Winnipeg BIZ: Memo - The latest information for BIZ Members

Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,

Help your fellow downtown businesses!

Downtown Winnipeg BIZ: Memo - The latest information for BIZ Members

Please complete by Tuesday, July 14 @ 4pm

We're seeing more downtown businesses reopening (up to 85%) and folks are slowly returning to work. As some of our downtown programming returns and things continue to shift, we're asking members to fill out a short survey to understand how you're doing. We want to be able to share the real picture of our downtown economy with governments and also know what you need from us next.

Please fill out the survey by 4pm today.

Everyone who fills out the survey can enter a draw for a hundred dollar gift card to any downtown Winnipeg business. It's an easy way to support your neighbour business!

Brighten your business and apply for the Building Exterior Lighting Grant Program

Now more than ever, welcoming more people to your business safely is likely a top priority. The City has a program that can help.

The Building Exterior Lighting Grant Program encourages building owners to invest in exterior building lighting to create a more inviting and safe pedestrian environment downtown. This year, the City contribution has increased to 90% to a maximum of ten thousand dollars per façade plus an additional five thousand dollars for professional design fees.

This program helps contribute to a downtown that welcomes visitors and employees back and helps ensure the experience is safe and welcoming. Visit the City of Winnipeg’s website to apply.

As always, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions:

Thank you,

Kate Fenske, CEO
Downtown Winnipeg BIZ
