Yorkton Chamber responds to Provincial Budget

The Board of Directors of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce considers the 2021-22 provincial budget released yesterday to be a good one for the business community.

Marty Sveinbjornson, President of the Chamber, said the theme of the Budget – “Protect, Build, Grow” - is overall favourable to businesses.  “Investing in infrastructure helps to keep the economy rolling and indicates a positive outlook for the future,” he said.

The Chamber continues to be concerned about the possibility of a major, wide-spread lockdown of businesses.  “While the Yorkton business community is very resilient, as has been demonstrated these past 13 months, another sweeping lockdown will spell the end for many of our small businesses,” said Sveinbjornson.  “The Yorkton Chamber urges the provincial government to consider the ramifications should more businesses be forced to permanently close due to the restrictions imposed upon them.”

The Yorkton Chamber is hopeful that current restrictions will soon be lifted so that businesses and residents can resume their normal activities.

The Chamber commends the government for the speed with which its most vulnerable citizens have been vaccinated.

The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce is “the voice of business in Yorkton” and represents over 450 members.
