A Message from the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce - Call centre to support Manitoba businesses

March 17, 2020

Hi everyone,

As Chuck mentioned in todays call, the Province has partnered with 24/7 InTouch to establish a call centre to support Manitoba businesses and answer question they have/help them apply for all of these Federal programs. The initiative “soft launched” today and they are asking businesses to NOT CALL them right now but instead to click the link I the email below and leave their contact information for a call back in the future.

In addition, MCC has launched our new webinar series Asked and Answered

First up we are welcoming Michael Selci, Senior Vice President, Financing & Consulting – Prairies, BDC & Willy Fogang, Senior Account Manager, Business Development Group, Export Development Canada to answer questions about Canada’s Economic Response Plan and al lthe various support programs that the Federal government has put in place.

These Q&A style webinar are free to attend and are open to you and your members so please feel share the attached graphic as you wish! Through the registration process there is a field to ask any questions you would like answered by our expert speaker.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to reach out!

Have a great weekend!

Good morning everyone,

As you may already be aware, the Manitoba government announced a new service earlier this week to connect Manitoba business, charities and not-for-profits to federal COVID-19 support programs. The service, managed through 24-7 InTouch, will provide outreach to ensure businesses, charities and non-profits are aware of the programs and know how to access them. They will also take incoming calls from organizations that have specific questions about accessing the programs. Further details will be released in the coming days. In the meantime, organizations can register at the link below to have 24-7 InTouch call them as soon as the service is fully operational.
