COVID-19 Support for Businesses

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is impacting City’s businesses and their operations. The City has been helping the local business community get the most accurate and up to date information to help business owners make informed decisions through this challenging time and assist them in meeting the Province’s safety and operational guidelines . To assist businesses affected by COVID-19 we’ve created this business resource hub which includes information about Mayor Buchanan’s Economic Recovery Task Force, Shop CNV program and more.

For all the latest news and updates from the City regarding COVID-19 visit cnv.org/COVID-19.


City Supports for Local Business

The City is providing various supports to businesses, including the following.

Temporary Park Use Permit for Businesses

The City is offering local businesses the opportunity to book space in parks and public spaces to operate programs that they would normally offer within their indoor business space. This parks permit initiative was successfully piloted in last year, and has been restarted for 2021. Applications welcome.

For programming at The Shipyards, download their COVID-19 Programming Guidelines.

Customer Line-up Management Assistance

We're connecting with local businesses, such as grocery stores and banks, to assist in lineup management outside of their business. For assistance on queue arrangement in front of business please contact Edison Ting, Streetscape Planner at eng@cnv.org

Walk 'n Shop

Our local businesses need our support now, more than ever. With that in mind, we’re encouraging residents to show their support for local businesses by:

  • Ordering take-out or delivery from local restaurants
  • Buying gift cards for use at a later date
  • Ordering from local businesses online
  • Sharing their local love with Walk & Shop
  • If you're a local business located in the City of North Vancouver we encourage you to add your business to our Walk 'n Shop In the City map
