Insurance

Generally, business insurance does not cover disruption due to a pandemic. We encourage business owners to get in contact with their insurance brokers to review their policies. 

Banking and Lenders

Each bank is working directly with their customers to make accommodations on a case by case basis. Contact your financial institution directly for more information.

#OpeninBeaumont

We have partnered with the Beaumont Chamber of Commerce to launch a social media campaign to encourage business owners to share how their business has changed and is still available to residents. Residents are also encouraged to explore the hashtag to shop local and learn more about the benefits of spending in their community. 

Decals Available 

Free floor decals are available for businesses to encourage physically distancing and the 6 foot spacing guidelines provided by Alberta Health Services. Email EcDev@beaumont.ab.ca for more information.

Tax & Utility Deferral

The City of Beaumont is allowing businesses to delay payment of their water and wastewater bills until September 30, 2020 without penalty or service cut off. Businesses and homeowners can delay paying property taxes until September 30, 2020 with no penalty.
