Blueneck Consulting - COVID 19 Business Update

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!

The Rockyview Hotel is For Sale in Beautiful Cochrane Alberta!

One of Alberta’s oldest operating hotels, established in 1904 on Cochrane’s Main Street, this amazing Old West building has served this town and travellers making their way up and down The Cowboy Trail for almost 120yrs! This grand lady is famous throughout Southern Alberta for her historic commitment to traditional western hospitality, comfortable accommodations, great food, drink and service.

The building is in excellent shape and maintained with an attention to detail by its passionate owners. The inside breaks down into different revenue streams with 15 guest rooms, a Restaurant/Steakhouse with 56 seats inside and another 52 on the sunlit patio, and the 186 seat Texas Gate Bar & Grill.

The restaurant is an excellent example of the preservation of an Old West restaurant you would see in the movies, with iconic pressed tin ceilings, wood accents and country warmth you can’t recreate today. Featuring home cooked meals, friendly service and historic photos of Southern Alberta landmarks, all this combines to provide guests with a one of a kind experience.

The fully renovated 15 Guest Rooms are comfortable and quaint, combining the Western feel with modern comforts. They have a very strong demand from Calgarians seeking a weekend away from the city, as well as travellers passing through on their way to Banff, Canmore and beyond or headed north or south while exploring the famous “Cowboy Trail”.

The diamond of this business is The Texas Gate Bar & Grill, a 186 seat authentic Western saloon style bar, which has been beautifully renovated, while being sure to maintain and honour its history and character. The beautiful Cherry wood bar is a focal point of the room, which also features pool tables, VLT’s, dart boards and lots of TV’s for sporting events, Rodeo etc. There is a stage and an extensive sound system capable of hosting large live music events or just a Saturday jam session if you wanted. They currently host Line Dance Lessons, Karaoke and live DJ’s on Friday and Saturday nights.

There is so much to this awesome business that you really need to see it to understand just how special it is, so don’t hesitate to reach out for a tour.
