Network Of Advisors Available For SMBs

Small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), not-for-profit organizations, and charities are among those most impacted by the current pandemic and will now have direct access to a network of qualified business advisors to help guide them courtesy of a government-funded program from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. The program, called the Business Resilience Service (BRS), is run through the Canadian Chamber’s Canadian Business Resilience Network in collaboration with EY and with support from Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and Imagine Canada. The BRS program will provide options for any vulnerable SMBs to immediately connect with experienced accounting and tax professionals across the country from professional services firms. The program, delivered to organizations free of charge, will provide guidance on program options and eligibility and rapidly direct businesses to the most appropriate support organizations. It will also help organizations make decisions to support recovery plans and provide real time insights and feedback to policymakers. The program will be provided for four weeks from May 25.
