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

Please complete the COVID-19 survey by Tuesday, June 9 @ 4pm

Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,

We are asking Downtown Winnipeg BIZ members to fill out a short survey to understand how COVID-19 has impacted your business and what support you need. In an effort to hear from more businesses, we’ve extended the deadline and are asking you to take the short survey by Tuesday, June 9 at 4pm.

Everyone who fills out the survey can enter to win a hundred dollar gift card to any downtown Winnipeg business. It’s another easy way to support local during this time.

Letter to Premier Brian Pallister

On May 29, I sent a letter to Premier Brian Pallister expressing our desire to work in partnership with the government as we move through Restoring Safe Services. We shared the concerns we’ve been hearing from members over the last few months, reiterating that rent forgiveness and direct financial support are still needed. We also shared that we’re looking to the future and that downtown businesses need long-term support as you navigate the recovery period.

The voices of our members are a valuable and important resource. The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ will continue to advocate on your behalf and use the information gathered from the survey to best prioritize your needs.

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

Thank you,

Kate Fenske, CEO
Downtown Winnipeg BIZ
