  • Still retroactive to March 15 (so far)
  • Expectation is that you don’t cut employee wages

Business Owner Update - Friday March 27, 2020


Today the Federal Government and Bank of Canada finally made key announcements to help small businesses:


  • Increased Payroll Subsidies up to 75% - This will be back-dated to March 15.  No link or details yet on the limitations or qualification. I will get them to you as soon as they are posted.  Here is the announcement https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1kvKpXdndQmKE
  • Government guaranteed, interest free small business loans up to $40,000 – this is a program where, if you go to your bank to borrow money to get through the next few months, the government of Canada will be the guarantor.   Under some circumstances (no details yet), 25% may become forgivable.
  • Bank of Canada drops Prime Rate to 0.25% - this makes the cost of borrowing as close to “free” as it gets.  This...

In talking to many of you this week, the number one emerging issue is stress.   The rapid rate of change being imposed on us, our employees, suppliers and customers is unprecedented.  The uncertainty regarding our health, both physical and financial, stemming from a dangerous virus racing around the globe is overwhelming many people.


The result is often emotional – anxiety, fear, and depression.  This in turn impacts morale and mental health, both yours and everyone you work with – the ones working on-site, the ones working remotely and the ones now on EI waiting to come back.


They need your leadership.  This is not the zombie apocalypse because we can do a lot to get this under control.  Four things to consider:


  1. Calgary and Edmonton are very different from New York or Milan who have 7.5-10,000 people per km2.  We have...

The past two weeks have been surreal. Many employees and employers are hanging on by a thread, mentally and financially. Many employees worry if they will have jobs or receive enough hours to pay their bills. Employers are being forced to close, or scale back their services, all the while still having to pay their rent, taxes, and payroll, while the market for many services is simply on hold. What can employers do to keep their head above water, while still trying to do the right thing by their employees? There are now some options.


1.   COVID-19 Leave of Absence (Alberta Employment Standards Code):

Unpaid 14 day leave of absence due to Quarantine. Contact me to discuss as the Government has been quite particular as to who qualifies for this leave of absence. 


2.   EI Sickness Benefits (Employment Insurance Act):

An employee can apply for EI Sickness Benefits for up...

Your opportunity to buy a Legend, and possibly buy the building too!

Since 1975 this restaurant has been a fixture in the Calgary food scene, the much loved original creator of Ginger Beef! The family has decided that it is time to retire. The restaurant has seating for 122, and is divided into 2 dining rooms so it's easy to staff and also book out for private parties.

The kitchen is a good size and could be converted to any type of cuisine, Italian, Greek, Indian or any type of Asian food. The way that the kitchen is laid out makes it VERY easy to pursue a business model that has a heavy on delivery or for operating multiple "ghost kitchen" concepts.

Call to set up a tour of this unique restaurant opportunity!
