Business affected by flooding? Help is available
As the water recedes in southern Alberta, the hard work is just beginning for you and other small business owners, who may just now be able to assess the damage that has been done.
CFIB has experienced Business Resource counsellors who can help your business through this difficult time, by connecting you with government programs and other resources that you may need. Businesses, whether CFIB members or not, can review the resources on our website, call us at 403-444-9290 (toll free 1 888 234-2232), or reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have concerns about payment deadlines, tax filing requirements or other compliance issues and how they might be affected, you are encouraged to ask for flexibility from your financial institution, as well as government and regulatory authorities. CFIB will be contacting these authorities over the next several weeks, and will impress upon them the need for flexibility in light of this disaster.
