Get on the road
to recovery!

Shuswap Economic Development, Shuswap Tourism, Salmon Arm Economic Development Society,  Community Futures Shuswap and the Tsuts’weye Women’s Entrepreneur & Innovation Network have come together to develop and implement a Phase I response to the economic impacts currently facing Shuswap businesses and organizations. The plan is designed to respond directly to the needs expressed by the local business community and stakeholder organizations and invite partnerships and collaboration with other regional business and economic development groups wherever possible.

There are many examples of Shuswap businesses going above and beyond to ensure the safety of our region and communities over the past several months.  Business owners responded proactively to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus by closing their doors, even though many were not mandated to do so.  Others went to great lengths, while remaining open to serve the public, to keep residents and employees safe.  As always, we are so proud of our local businesses and will continue to support you as we move into BC’s Restart Plan. 

Support in 6 key areas is available and include:

Business Restart Survey Findings

In early July, in alignment with British Columbia entering Phase 3 of the Provincial Restart Plan, the Shuswap Economic Recovery partners launched a survey designed to gather information on the current state of business in the Shuswap region. This data will assist the partners in developing effective response measures to assist Shuswap businesses with recovery and continuity, specific to the COVID-19 pandemic. To date (August 21st, 2020), there have been a total of 90 responses from businesses throughout the Shuswap region. Although there was a diversity of responses from across sectors, the majority represented businesses from the Service, Retail, Tourism and Health sectors.
