Local Business Continuity 

Many of our members have had to close or adjust the way they are doing business.  Please click here to find out more about the status of our local businesses.  We are working diligently to expand this list and will continue to update it as we receive information from our members.

This Facebook Group is also a useful resource for finding out more about the status of local businesses.

The Chamber has  partnered with FanSaves to launch a Gift Certificate Program enabling local businesses to sell gift certificates online. It is free for businesses/organizations to register and funds are paid directly to the local business within 14 days. A one-stop-shop, individuals can buy gift certificates from local businesses across Kawartha Lakes for use once businesses move toward recovery.
