The Chamber applauds the decision by the City of Victoria to extend its Business Recovery from Pandemic bylaw into the spring. The bylaw was set to expire at the end of October. The bylaw temporarily allowed businesses to use outdoor spaces for patios and other commercial activities.
"Businesses are always at the forefront of innovations that move our economy forward and build resilience," Chamber CEO Bruce Williams said. "We're happy to see local governments working with businesses to include initiatives that are being asked for by the public."
The deadline extension potentially gives city staff time to look at individual situations to ensure they're safe and accessible, as well as their impact on parking in downtown Victoria.
