About this event

Join us for a recap & review of the legislation and programs currently in place for businesses during the COVID-19 crisis, including Wage Subsidy and Canada Emergency Response Benefit. To help answer your questions, we welcome back lawyers Sundeep Gokhale and Ed Snetsinger of Sherrard Kuzz LLP.

In the second half, Steve Smith, a business advisor from the Government of Ontario, will review non-COVID-19 related funding programs available. We will also recap COVID-19 funding for wood companies.

Also, join us as we review the upcoming BWA Industry 4.0 Digital Adoption Project through NRCan IFIT and the BWA Buying Group.

This event will include:

  1. Updates to Wage Subsidy and Canada Emergency Response Benefit. Guest speakers Sundeep Gokhale and Ed Snetsinger of Sherrard Kuzz LLP specialize in Employment & Labour law and will return for a third time to share updates to the quickly changing government responses followed by a Q&A.
  2. Funding Sources: COVID-19 and NON-COVID-19 related funding for wood companies. Stephen Smith, (MEDJCT) Senior Business Advisor of Government of Ontario, will provide an update on funding programs available to businesses followed by a Q&A. We will also recap COVID-19 funding for wood companies.
  3. BWA has been working with Natural Resources Canada to develop a framework for digital adoption projects to Industry 4.0. The project can provide funding of 50% for investments in transformational technology. A pilot project is coming along with a call for interest.
  4. BWA has started the development of a buying group, and we are getting close to the execution of a buying group committee. The buying group will provide members with rebates on specific product groupings from suppliers participating in the group. Rebates can range from 3-10%. This initiative was developed to help wood companies become more competitive and sustainable.
  5. And finally, an open discussion with all attendees to see how everyone is coping and dealing with the legislation and business challenges. 

We hope you can join us for this important event as we all work together to understand better how to position our industry to cope with the crisis and prepare for recovery. We welcome your feedback on topics of interest from manufacturers and suppliers for upcoming events.
