YRBiz Roadmap to Recovery: The Free Workshops You Need!

A year ago, a global pandemic likely wouldn’t have cracked anyone’s list of top 25 things that could threaten a business. Fast forward and it’s the number one issue many companies are dealing with today. Along with reduced business, consumer patterns have changed and continue to evolve as we learn to live in these unprecedented times.

The Newmarket Chamber has partnered with the Regional Municipality of York and the Vaughan Chamber to launch a free online business information series. Designed to provide practical insights and strategies, join YRBiz for virtual workshops, resources and networks to get your business back to profitability.
