Factor 5 COVID-19 Immediate Economic Response Plan

Factor 5 COVID-19 Immediate Economic Response Plan


We hope you and your family are healthy and well.  These are difficult times that require us all to think fast and take action to support our families, friends, neighbours and communities. Lives, livelihoods and the prosperity of the community are on the line, so we need to roll up our sleeves and work together.


To help communities wrap their heads around the current situation and chart the path forward, one of the things we are doing is providing COVID-19 Immediate Economic Response Plans to towns and villages at no cost. 

The process is designed to:

  • start immediately,

  • rapidly engage key economic development stakeholders,

  • facilitate discussion, 

  • outline an action plan within 7 days.  


As the situation evolves, we will work with communities to address critical challenges and position the local economy for accelerated recovery by facilitating strategic collaboration.
