Squamish Business Resilience Program

What is the Resilience Program?

The District of Squamish Economic Development is pleased to provide the Squamish Business Resilience Program, developed in partnership with Spring Activator and The Discovery Foundation and supported by the Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Squamish, and the Downtown Squamish BIA.

This program aims to help small businesses and entrepreneurs recover from recent closures and other impacts related to COVID-19 by helping our community evaluate their current business, identify their ‘new normal,’ create a plan to survive, and take necessary action to thrive one again. 

The program provides tools and resources from experts and is free for Squamish businesses to access.

Program Format

An online program that Squamish businesses can register for and will have access to for 6 months.

Businesses can go at their own pace and select the content that is most appropriate for their current needs.

Each lesson has a video delivering the core content, along with a worksheet and resource guide.

Businesses will also have access to an online community platform of curated resources, local entrepreneurs, as well as Economic Development and partner members.
