The Surrey Board of Trade is pleased to announce the safe re-opening of the Surrey Board of Trade office (#101, 14439-104 Avenue) on July 6 from 9am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
“On March 16, I had to make the difficult but necessary decision to close the office and have all staff work from home as a result of the continued escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic situation,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.
“During this time, we have continued to serve our members and Surrey’s business community in the delivery of our diversified service portfolio of business & international trade development/documentation, events, government advocacy, workforce support and economic development. Beyond this, we deployed ground-zero principles, reaching out to businesses of all sizes and industries to determine how they could be best supported through the pandemic.”
The Surrey Board of Trade restart plan has been composed in accordance with WorkSafeBC guidelines. Further, the Surrey Board of Trade has committed to the federal government’s POST Promise which signifies a commitment to implement and practice the five key steps to workplace safety, helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is supported by many of the largest associations in Canada, including the Surrey Board of Trade. The objective is to have businesses across the country take part in a collective solution to help Canadians confidently and safely take the first steps back into public spaces and the workplace, which includes:
Maintaining physical distance
Washing and sanitizing hands
Cleaning and disinfecting regularly
Staying home if unwell and self-monitoring for symptoms
Practicing respiratory etiquette (including wearing a mask when physical distancing is difficult)
“We look forward, even in the face of constant change, to ensuring that Surrey is an opportunity city.”
