BC Businesses: Questions About Your Rent? Learn All About Commercial Leasing in the COVID-19 Era, Ju
Port McNeill, B.C. - At the Chamber we know that commercial leases and rents have been a primary reason of business closure in the Province throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and that fact is no different in Port McNeill and on the North Island.
"As we head towards the start of a new month, businesses across the province are assessing whether they can cover one of their biggest expenses – rent. While businesses evaluate their ability to pay rent now and in the coming months, this lunch ‘n’ learn is aimed to help businesses assess their options. Insight from legal and policy experts will help you navigate supports, understand government programs, and be aware of legal obligations. Focuses include:
The federal government’s CECRA program,
Negotiating with landlords,
The future of commercial leasing.
