Ask Government Webinar

April 28, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am ADT

The three orders of government have moved quickly to develop programs to assist business through this public health crisis. This webinar is an opportunity for members of Nova Scotia’s Business Improvement Districts (NSBIDS) to hear directly from government officials and ask questions or share concerns regarding business programs and recovery plans. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, downtown and mainstreet businesses were the first and often the hardest hit. We have heard stories of despair and concern, but also of hope and innovation. In our collective efforts to continue to advocate on behalf of our business districts and work in partnership with our government, we hope you are able to join this webinar.

• Introduction by NSBIDS
• Brief presentation on the programs that are available through their government by government representatives
• Facilitated Q & A with businesses and government representatives via pre-submitted emailed questions and through a live moderated Zoom Q & A function
