Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,
After another year of waiting, switching gears and coming up with new ways to reach customers, you have inspired us. Let me speak for everyone at the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ when I say we are energized and motivated by your determination and perseverance.
The last couple of years have not been easy, and I know there are particular challenges when it comes to running a business under these circumstances. Know that we are here for you, and we’re listening. We’re also acting. We’ll continue to provide all the services that enhance downtown. We will leverage the data collected in 2021 when advocating on your behalf and we will bring joy with our tours, events and initiatives.
While we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, know that we will keep you updated with any information that might be helpful for you. We’ve pulled together a list of the government supports that are currently available, including the new provincial government’s Sector Support program which has applications open as of today. As always, reach out if you have questions.
