THE EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND
We recognize that many small to medium sized businesses are most at risk during this crisis. While Federal and Provincial support initiatives continue to evolve, the hard costs of doing business remain and are especially impactful to those merchants who have been mandated to close.
The Emergency Relief Fund, created jointly through financial and in-kind contributions of the Mission Downtown Business Association, Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce and Community Futures North Fraser, offers fund of up to $2,500 to support immediate business operation needs.
Next Deadline is November 15th 2020.
HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT
It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that the Mission Downtown Business Association announces the cancellation of this year’s annual Trick or Treat event (due to take place on Saturday, October 31st, 2020).
We know that this decision comes as an enormous disappointment to the community. Hallowe’en Trick or Treating has become a staple in our downtown and our businesses look forward to this event each year.
This is not a decision that the DBA board has taken lightly, Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation.
At this time, we would like to do a special shout out to the participating businesses and sponsors. It's these individuals and companies that have gone above and beyond over the past few years.
An enormous thank you to the kids and the parents who participate in our event each year. We will continue to do everything we can to help our community stay safe, informed and connected and we look forward to welcoming you back to trick or treat next year.
The Downtown Business Association is made up of all the merchants and landowners in in the Business Improvement Area (BIA) which is from Murray Street west to Alder, and from Second Avenue south to Railway Avenue. The association’s board is comprised of 12 of those merchants and business owners, who volunteer their time to assist the efforts of the MDBA.
