Dear CFDC Clients and the Northumberland Business Community,

These are exceptional times and everyone is working hard to ensure continuity of business wherever possible, while innovating to meet COVID-19 pandemic response challenges and opportunities.

Like you, our inboxes and social media streams are overwhelmed with new and upcoming program information, program updates, various links and a myriad of invitations to webinars and workshops.

To help you navigate this constantly evolving situation and the ever-increasing deluge of COVID-19 content, we are launching our own COVID-19 Business Support Navigator project. Every Wednesday, our dedicated Business Development Officers will be available for direct booking with our clients (and any business located in Northumberland County) to work with you online and one on one, to support you in interpreting and understanding COVID-19 programs of all kinds (including our own) and advising on how your business can efficiently access, apply, register or connect. Our team has decades of combined experience in government funding, financing, business advisory support and economic development and if we don’t have the answer ready at hand we will find it for you, to the best of our ability.

We want you to know that dedicated and local one-on-one support from people you know and trust is available to you during this difficult time. We can work together to identify positive solutions and move forward with strength and confidence.

Ready to begin?

Click any of the following links to book a maximum 45 minute session (powered by Zoom) with one of our Business Development Officers (subject to availability every Wednesday on a rolling, two-month basis, first-come-first-served). Expertise noted in parentheses.

Judy Selvig (Federal, Provincial and Municipal programs, funding applications, project planning, claims assistance, program referrals)

Lorraine Bulger (Program administration, reporting, claims assistance)

Joe Miller (Innovation, science and technology, intellectual property, partnerships, funding applications, government programs, business planning, program referrals)
