The COVID-19 situation continues to change rapidly, and as a Township, we are doing our best to adapt how we conduct business and serve our community, while protecting the safety of our staff and residents. Township officials are working closely with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health to respond to the situation.
COVID-19 is significantly impacting Canadian businesses. The Township of Puslinch is committed to helping our local business community get easy access to information to help business owners make informed decisions through this challenging time. The Township of Puslinch has provided a dedicated page to offer businesses affected by COVID-19. This new Business support page can be found at https://www.puslinch.ca/en/doing-business/tools-and-information-for-local-business.asp
This dedicated page is a useful tool that helps identify relief programs and incentives that apply to specific business needs and the links to the government and other sources of support. It also includes information on employee support, financial assistance to help Puslinch businesses mitigate the economic impacts as a result of COVID-19. We would like to thank our municipal partners who were instrumental in compiling this information. Please continue to monitor this page for the latest updates.
Puslinch Mayor James Seeley says:
This is a rapidly evolving situation; discussions and decisions are being made on an ongoing basis. Any changes in operations will be communicated and posted to the Township’s website at www.puslinch.ca.
