As we have all been adapting to the unforeseen changes the pandemic has spurred, businesses from every sector have been affected. With some establishments having to reduce capacity, some transitioning to online operations and some businesses having to close their doors entirely, it has been hard to access the supports best suited per circumstance. The Government of B.C. has made Stronger BC a one-stop portal that links to all of the available recovery programs that British Columbia is offering and thankfully, Agency Media is here to support through the process.

At Agency Media, we have become well-seasoned in assisting business owners in applying for the COVID-19 programs they’re eligible for and we are also available to support with our services thereafter. We are more than able to work within the budgets and requirements of the programs to ensure your grants are spent to their full potential.

Here is a brief overview of the grants the provincial government is offering:
