Sorry - my last comment was covered - thanks to compiling the resources on SBBC team goes primarily to Darren Dunne!
I own a business, but I also work for Community Futures in Terrace, BC. Our office is trying to stay on top of all of the information coming from Feds and the Province. We are awaiting that potential Phase 2 of funding Ruby had alluded to earlier, but we are here for our communities to offer technical assistance. All of the offices are operated independently, so if you have a CF in your community, check in with them to see how they can assist you.
Thanks, Darren :)
