COVID-19 Resources

The Centre for Family Business is here to support you during this time of uncertainty. It is important we all look out for one another and share resources, recommendations based on qualified expert opinions and any other information that may assist our members to navigate through these uncharted waters. Centre for Family Business has the most respected sponsors in the Waterloo region and Canadian business so we will be distributing their insights and information as it becomes available to us. You may see this information more than once through different channels but we are confident the importance validates numerous postings.

BDO, a valued CFFB sponsor, has created a COVID-19 resource centre, designed to help your business adapt and respond to the crisis from managing the immediate impact to your organization, to developing long-term strategies for success.
