Resources and Information for the Business Community during COVID-19

UPDATED December 3, 2020

BACD and our network of 54 offices are gathering as many resources, ideas, solutions as possible for our business community. We know this time is not easy – however, let’s do our best to focus on the present moment. Let’s support each other, our community, our businesses, friends and family. Reach out to people, phone, text, FaceTime – whatever you can do to support each other.

Some ideas on how to support local businesses:

  • Like and Share their posts
  • Leave a Google and Facebook Review
  • Shop Online
  • Purchase gift cards
  • Reschedule appointments rather than cancel

Join the Durham Region Small Business Online Directory – suitable for businesses who have an online or digital service/product offer
