Blueneck Consulting - COVID 19 Business Update

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:


  • Help for your employees to conserve cash:
    • Income Tax owing can be deferred to Aug 31
    • Residential Utility Payments can be deferred for up to 90 days without being disconnected
    • Personal Mortgages and Loan Payments with Alberta credit unions and ATB can be requested to be deferred up to 6 months based on need.  Some national banks are doing the same thing, but also only based on need.
    • Emergency Isolation Payment for Albertans to have covid-19, returning from abroad or have been in contact with someone tested positive with covid-19 can get up to $1,146 until the Federal program is in place.  This is time limited till April 1.
    • Emergency Support for non-EI eligible Workers applies to any of your employees or their spouses are unable to work but cannot get EI.   If they have been asked to self-isolate because they have covid-19, suspected to have covid-19 or need to care for someone with covid-19, they can apply for $900 every two weeks for up to 15 weeks.  They can apply through the CRA MyAccount portal.
  • Reduce the pain of laying off employees by considering job-sharing program.   This allows employees to work part-time for you and get a partial top-up of EI.  If your business can stay open, this is a great way to drastically reduce your payroll and look after you valued staff.  However, this program takes 30 days to be approved, so you must get your application in immediately!  https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/work-sharing/apply.html


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!

Very Profitable Little Stand-Alone Pub in Calgary Bedroom Community. This is the quintessential local neighborhood pub, where everyone really does know your name. Known in the community as the place that everyone comes to for a little fun and get away from the kids for an evening or afternoon. If you need a date night out with great food or maybe play some games with your friends…this is the place. There are 2 pool tables to play on, 4 VLTS and if you still need more, the dance floor is always ready to be used. But every Friday and Saturday night when the live DJ starts up…it is THE place in town to party and dance. The seating capacity breakdown is 115 inside and 45 on the patio, with a monthly rent of $6700. The pub is in great shape, and has been extremely well maintained, all the equipment is regularly serviced and shows very well. True neighbourhood pubs do not come available that often, so call to set up a tour of this great money making pub operation!

Nightclub For Sale in Calgary Are you interested in the Calgary Nightclub scene? True nightclubs do not come to the market that often, so this is a great chance to buy one for a very competitive price. This is a fantastic spot with a recent renovation and a great floor plan that can be utilized in a bunch of different ways for large functions & corporate parties during the week, and then as a true dance club on the weekends. There is a small kitchen for the food requirements, a private room to rent out for Stag’s and Stagette’s, Birthday Parties etc., as well as a patio. All of the equipment is in excellent shape, it would cost you a small fortune to rebuild this from scratch, so this is a very strong opportunity for the right operator. The sound and lighting systems are very impressive, with the latest technology creating a very Vegas like atmosphere. If you are looking at buying a nightclub, look no further, you will be surprised at how great this space is and its versatility as a venue.
