PITT MEADOWS, BC—The City of Pitt Meadows has launched the Local Business and Services Listing. This online guide contains valuable information about altered operational delivery, business hours and ways to shop in an effort to enable residents to shop local. The City has launched this resource as part of the Pitt Meadows City Council approved Economic Resiliency Task Force (ERTF).

“Pitt Meadows is proud of its local business community,” says Mayor Bill Dingwall. “In these trying times, it is vital that we shop local. It is very exciting to see our local businesses finding creative ways to serve the community. We are asking residents to support their favourite shops and restaurants when they need it most.”

The ERTF is recruiting for up to six dedicated individuals from Pitt Meadows to represent a variety of sectors and sizes (e.g. business, financial, retail, industrial, and tourism) to serve on the Task Force.

“The mandate of the Task Force is to advocate through senior levels of government to ease the economic burdens created by COVID-19; to share information and educate the community about resources and programs available to support business and community resiliency; and work in collaboration with stakeholders to identity economic recovery for business, workers and the community,” says Chief Administrative Officer Mark Roberts. 

To view the new Local Business and Services Listing and/or apply to the new Economic Resiliency Task Force by April 13, visit pittmeadows.ca/ertf.
