Episode 23: Downtown Halifax Covid 19 Report 11, May 25, 2020

A conversation with Patrick Sullivan, President & CEO of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce and Chair of the Nova Scotia Business & Labour Economic Coalition. Patrick will tell us about how and why the Coalition was formed and the work it has done so far as well as the work that has yet to be done.

Paul MacKinnon, CEO of Downtown Halifax Business Commission, will be joining that conversation and will give us updates on DHBC’s latest advocacy efforts.

We’ll also review what businesses are up to since the State of Emergency was declared back in March, and we’ll finish with some updates regarding What’s Open for business in Downtown Halifax, and how you can stay connected with the Downtown Halifax community in this time of physical distancing.
