Kitimat Chamber of Commerce is applauding businesses remaining open to provide essential services

The Kimat Chamber of Commerce issued a statement today commending businesses for continuing essential services during the Covid-19 global pandemic, but recognized the economic impact will be dire.

“For many, if not all, we as businesses are facing an unprecedented challenge. This challenge has been sudden, impactful and very difficult to be prepared for,” Daniel Chimko, president of the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce, said.

“However, we as businesses are also the leaders, the innovators, and the problem solvers that are well suited to overcome such challenges. Please remember to remain optimistic, positive, and take this opportunity to cherish your loved ones.”

Chimko added that while it is important that during the crisis businesses must follow guidelines provided by health professionals.

“It is crucial that we all do our part to get the situation under control. In the meantime, government assistance for businesses is coming. The Kitimat Chamber of Commerce, along with the BC and Canadian Chambers of Commerce will be keeping you informed of these details and opportunities as they become available,” Chimko said.

“On behalf of the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce would like to extend sincere gratitude to all of the businesses that are remaining open to provide essential supplies, all of the healthcare workers on the frontlines, and every other citizen that continues to do their job to get us through this. Your work is greatly appreciated.”
