Kahnawà:ke (Kentenhkó:wa/November 17, 2020)

Tewatohnhi’saktha has obtained the services of PlanIt Consulting, to conduct a Survey of the Kahnawà:ke Business Community in
an effort to assess the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses, as well as identify other barriers. The resulting data will be analyzed in an effort to better serve our local entrepreneurs and develop sound policies and future program development.

New programs will be intended to help Kahnawà:ke businesses recover from the adverse effects of the pandemic restrictions on their operations and is meant to complement the support from the Business Interruption Fund (BIF). Ultimately, the goal will be to place businesses in a more competitive position to operate successfully especially in the event economic conditions remain unstable.

Tewatohnhi’saktha and the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) continue to work together to support our business community by providing economic relief, in response to the Kahnawà:ke COVID-19 emergency measures.

PlanIt Consulting will begin contacting businesses this week. The survey is made up of 27 questions and should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.“It is vital that businesses participate in the survey so we can obtain the most accurate picture of the impacts on our local businesses as a result of this pandemic,” said Tammy Delaronde, Director of Business Services. “We want to help push businesses forward rather than just keep them afloat,” she concluded.
