We reached out to small businesses to hear their stories on how receiving a $10,000 grant from the CBRN Small Business Relief Fund would affect their business. This is Pierre Marleau’s story:
Orange Frog Productions, a Calgary, Alberta-based event and production company, has been closed since March 12, as the entertainment industry was among those first impacted by COVID-19.
If they are successful in receiving a CBRN Grant, they will be able to use the money to pay rent, to keep employees on payroll, and to continue to contribute their community in Calgary.
Thank you Pierre for your submission, and good luck!
