The City of Mississauga’s Economic Development Office has launched a new dedicated online resource for the business community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The web portal will be a one-stop site for businesses to get the latest information on government updates, relief packages and services offered by the City.
“We understand the impact that COVID-19 is having on local businesses. Many are concerned about how they will weather this economic storm. Our City has taken measures where possible, such as deferring taxes to reduce financial stress during this challenging time. Our Economic Development Office is equipped and ready to support our businesses, small and large, with one-on-one support. We will continue to consult with our Economic Development Advisory Board as this situation unfolds and support local manufacturers interested in retooling their operations to produce essential medical supplies needed to battle this virus,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
Mayor Bonnie Crombie and City Councillors continue to meet virtually with members of Mississauga’s Economic Development Advisory Board (EDAB) to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the local economy, as well as possible solutions to this economic challenge.
