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...

COVID 19 - The Emerging

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...

Top 5 Employer Options During The Coronavirus Pandemic

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...

Here Is A New Listing That I Just Posted In Calgary, Calgary


Here is a new listing that I am happy to post in Calgary, Calgary.
Do you want to get into the Pizza Business? You can either keep this as a Franchise store or you can buy it and put in your own concept. At 1137sqft, you have just enough room for a good size kitchen and some storage while not being too big. There are a few seats for people waiting for their orders, or to enjoy a slice. The store is VERY well outfitted with walk in refrigeration and a large prep area. The Pizza ovens are Garland Air Decks that are in very good shape as well as a new Somerset dough sheeter and a Hatco slice warmer. The equipment is in excellent condition and the store is nice and clean, and ready for a new owner operator. The current owner fully renovated the shop when they bought it, including all new tile. The location is perfect for a pizza store, with so many positives. It is close to a number of high volume transit routes and the C-Train, on a major roadway with tons of daily traffic, and is in a very busy strip mall. The well-established neighbourhood a great mix of single family homes, as well as lots of multi family rental buildings, these factors are excellent for a pick up and delivery business. Call if you would like more details or if you would like to set up a tour of store.

Located in one of Calgary's fastest changing communities, this is a great standalone restaurant building. You could maintain the current concept or change it to your own vision. It has a great front dining area with lots of natural light and a very strong curb appeal. There is lots of street parking right out front, as well as, parking in the rear of the building.
