Executive Director's Message - June 2020

As the province starts slowly allowing restaurants and businesses to open, there is a lot to be aware of and keep in mind to stay safe while operating. A lot of rules for benefits have changed as well. Stay up to date with the latest changes on the front page of: www.emeryvillagebia.ca

The site has consistently updated information, along with our social media channels.

Emery Village BIA is putting together a PPE directory including businesses which offer any of the following: gloves, temperature screening equipment, electrostatic disinfection, masks, face shields and eye protection. This will be circulated widely in the BIA and online. Please reach out to us to be added to our PPE booklet by emailing: info@emeryvillagebia.ca Or calling, 416-744-7242.

The PPE Booklet will be available at: www.emeryvillagebia.ca/ppe-booklet

We are also continuing the Shop Emery First: Business Boosters campaign to assist businesses during this pandemic with a minimum run of free advertising guaranteed for two months in the Emery Village Voice and on social media. If you have a special sale or offer or would like to promote your business in some way, please fill out the form at: emeryvillagebia.ca/business-booster

You will be asked to provide your business name, address, contact information, a brief explanation of your offer, and how long it is valid.

Finally, a reminder of our increased security patrols and emergency plan. We have increased our operating patrols to include two day patrol cars (6 p.m. to 6 a.m.) and four evening patrol cars (6 p.m. to 6 a.m.) to ensure full coverage of our area. Please ensure that your alarm company has the most up to date contact information and telephone numbers in the event of an alarm call. The two numbers for VP Protection Dispatch are 416-218-3226 or 647-202-3022.
