NELSON – New Democrat MLA Brittny Anderson says that over $5 million in grants has been distributed to help small businesses in Nelson-Creston to adapt and recover from the impacts of the pandemic.

“I am tremendously grateful to small business owners and their staff,” said MLA Anderson. “They are an incredibly important part of our community here in the Kootenays. And in spite of the challenges from COVID-19, they have pivoted to continue serving us. I’m glad our government has been able to support them through these shifts.”

The grants were distributed through a combination of different programs, including the Small and Medium-Sized Business Recovery Grant and Circuit Breaker Grant. Together, these programs invested more than $530 million in support for nearly 30,000 businesses across the province.

B.C. continues to lead all other provinces in our economic recovery from the pandemic. Supporting local business is an integral part of our StrongerBC Economic Plan, which will grow our economy while building an innovative, sustainable and inclusive future for all people in British Columbia.
