The federal government has provided more than $104,000 to the Prescott-Russell Community Development Corporation (PRCDC) to help the region’s small and medium businesses cope with the pandemic.

The support, from the government’s Regional Relief and Recovery Fund, would help provide training and assistance to business owners in the region as they transitioned their operations during the COVID-19 economic disruptions. That would include free assistance and training on e-commerce, business management, human resources and more, provided by local business professionals.

PRCDC executive director John Candie said the simplicity and effectiveness of the assistance would help businesses and entrepreneurs to maintain their operations or recover. “We must have the means to allow the continuity of the necessary operations and, at the same time, to ensure an adequate return to normalcy at the appropriate time,” he said.

“This is why we must provide the businesses and entrepreneurs concerned with the right tools to prepare a possible exit from the raging storm.”
