Registration open for Maple Ridge ‘Town Hall’ on businesses reopening

Event is an opportunity to answer questions businesses may have about reopening

Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows business leaders have opened registration to a virtual town hall meeting that is to address many questions business owners may have about the gradual reopening of the economy this month.

May 6, the B.C. government announced it’s moving towards cautiously reopening up business and services closed by COVID-19. The “restart plan” did not include specific dates for reopening.

The Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association, city, and politicians are to host the virtual town hall May 14 at 1 p.m.

The panel includes representation from the City of Maple Ridge, Worksafe BC, Fraser Health, bylaw departments and more.
