The Business Link (TBL) from the Alberta Government

The Business Link (TBL) has been working on a general information document to assist small businesses based on the main questions that TBL has been asked by flood affected businesses. TBL recognizes that while this document is only a starting point, it provides some valuable initial information on the “most asked questions” to date.

They have designed the document to be printable and usable for those that don’t have internet access. A e-copy is available here.

Here is the web link to the Resources for Businesses affected by the 2013 Alberta Flood pdf document: http://www.canadabusiness.ab.ca/docs/Resources_for_Small_Businesses_affected_by_the_2013_Alberta_Flood.pdf .

The pdf is found right from the TBL home page, www.canadabusiness.ab.ca , right within “What’s New”, “Resources for Businesses Affected by the 2013 Alberta Flood”, section by clicking on the hyperlinked word “guide”.
