Southeast Economic Recovery Task Force Releases Action Plan  

The Southeast Economic Recovery Task Force has released a 5-Phase Action Plan to guide efforts to rebuild and stabilize the region’s economy as it emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Action Plan consists of the following phases: Critical, two phases of Reactivation of Services, Stabilization, and The New Normal. Each phase will have specific initiatives designed to provide support, guidance and leadership for the southeast region’s business community.
New Brunswick has transitioned from the Critical phase where public health and safety were paramount to the second phase of Reactivation of Services as the province moved to its Yellow Phase of business reopening last week.
“The pandemic has created a great deal of uncertainty for the business community,” Chamber of Commerce CEO John Wishart said. “We hope this action plan will provide a sense of collective effort and resolve to help smooth the way back for many business owners.”
The Task Force meets weekly and consists of lead agencies 3+ Economic Development Corporation, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton, WorkingNB, Opportunities New Brunswick, Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, City of Moncton, Ville de Dieppe and Expansion Dieppe, Town of Riverview, Town of Sackville, Downtown Moncton Centreville Inc. and the United Way of Greater Moncton and Southeastern New Brunswick.
To date, the group has collaborated to build a central COVID-19 resources website, has conducted a survey of local business owners and held an Economic Leadership Town Hall. Their work has also included reviewing all current economic development strategies, and producing a personal protective equipment supplier list.
Upcoming initiatives under the action plan will include a project that focuses on the needs of the retail and service sector in the region and development of a weekly webinar series to help businesses.
“While there remain many unknowns about how and when our economy will recover, we collectively believe mapping out what we do know will help individual businesses and the region as a whole,” 3+ Corp. CEO Susy Campos added.
The 5-Phase Action Plan is now posted on the joint COVID-19 resource page
