A Notice About Safety

The situation in Canada and within each province, related to the COVID-19 crisis, is changing by the day.

Each organization listed on this site has confirmed they are following government regulations to safeguard their customers and employees. Please ensure you follow your provincial and municipal government’s guidelines for the most current and accurate information. 

If you are ill or have cold or flu-like symptoms, have been exposed to COVID-19 or are required to self-isolate due to travel, please do not visit a listed organization’s physical location.

Business not as usual

This initiative was developed to help small businesses communicate what they are doing to pull through the crisis.

It may be quiet, but if you listen closely, there's a hum. Behind closed doors, kitchens are cooking, artists are creating, instructors are teaching, makers are making. Things may have changed, but we're resilient, we've found new ways to connect with one another.

This initiative was created by Lift Interactive and The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group to support the businesses that we know and love.
