I have Just Listed a new property at 3 3500 27 ST NE in CALGARY.
Great opportunity to purchase a fully equipped turn key machine shop. This machine shop has been operating out of this location for over 30 years and owners have now retired. It would cost over two million dollars to fixture the shop the way it is. too much equipment and tools to list here. Outstanding location and lease. There is an opportunity to purchase the bay this business is operating in. Call for additional information and chattel list.

We at Misura Berteit & Associates understand that the events of the last few weeks have left a lot of “unanswer-able” questions. While we don’t have the answers, we do feel that there are some resources available out there. We encourage you to review and keep informed with the latest updates:
1. Government of Canada’s website: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Resources for Canadian Businesses: https://www.tradecommissioner.gc.ca/campaign-campagne/ressources-entreprises-COVID-19-business-resources.aspx?lang=eng
- Supporting our employees
While we feel that all these issues may not be relevant to each of us and there are (still) no firm answers, at least this is a good start. If you have discovered a good resource – please share it with us! We’d love to be able to pass onto our clients and entrepreneurs the networks and resources available out there.
As always, we’re here to support you in any way we can including:
- Setting up teleconference or video conference meetings
- We can send you links to upload your information to so it can be delivered to us digitally and encrypted
- We have a fax machine; while this is generally thought of as outdated technology, it may still come in handy if that’s the delivery method you prefer to use during this period of social distancing
- Call us for courier / pick-up outside your door to our door
- General calls; we know that businesses can feel isolated at times like this – feel free to reach out to us as an entrepreneur who just needs to talk. We may not have the answers but we are business owners ourselves and just talking can alleviate some of the stress sometimes.

Today’s Government Announcement: No new Federal support announcements today from our PM. The focus today will be passing emergency measures that give the federal government broader powers to spend money, redirect economic activity and implement further restrictions.
Ontario and Quebec are locking down their provinces at the end of today, except for essential services. ATTACHED IS A LIST OF ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES IN ONTARIO. On this list is every one of my clients’ business types are included. Most businesses engaged or supplyingConstruction, Manufacturing, Real Estate, Food, Healthcare and Transportation, among others, are all on the list. The good news here is that if this becomes the template for other provinces, most of you will be able to continue operations – but please do it SAFELY.https://open.alberta.ca/publications/covid-19-information-help-prevent-the-spread-poster
Right now, it is being left to provinces to decide on lock-down measures. Alberta has the 4th largest population of covid-19 cases, but there seems to be no interest so far to lock down the province. The Federal Government, however, is passing the Emergency Powers Act andcould intervene. Most likely, for now, the Provinces are likely to be left to make local decisions and the Federal government will focus on economic stabilization spending and inter-provincial, international travel restrictions. However, this can change quickly if cases start spiking quickly.
Financial support for your business, employees and clients:
Many of your businesses are now adapting daily business, and making additional preparations. Below I’ve summarized programs to help ease the difficulty of reducing your workforce and other measures to conserve cash, which is critical over the coming months:
SUPPLY CHAIN CONSIDERATIONS
The US is expected to be the next epicentre of Covid-19 spread. The US is in very bad shape to control this and the President is implying that he is willing to consider accepting high loss of life to keep the economy open. If this happens, ANY SUPPLY COMING FROM THE US may be at risk. Please review your US-based supply and monitor your individual situations on a daily basis.
However, China is starting to do phased re-opening of their economy and re-opening hospitals to the public. It took less than 2 months of lock-down and isolating people. Strict hygiene measures, quarantining the sick and social isolation/distancing have been the keys. Please LEARN from this and take implementation of these measures in your work locations SERIOUSLY. It is the best way to keep you working!

Here is a new listing that I am happy to post at 3 2220 20 AV NW in Calgary.
Pizza Delivery and Take-Out locations in NW Calgary are hard to come by, and this one is in a great upscale area. It was built all new a few years ago, from scratch, so the equipment is in great shape and the store is VERY clean. There is the chance of expanding into the next door bay if you would like to make the space larger and offer more on the menu. All you would need to do is put in a vented kitchen...and the sky's the limit! The current operation only runs on VERY limited hours, about 22hrs a week right now, so you could make this an EXTREMELY profitable little pizza place. Call to get all the info and discuss it in more detail.
