CFDC Announces Creation of COVID-19 Business Relief Advisor

Cornwall & The Counties Community Futures Development Corporation is pleased to announce that through the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF) provided by FedDev Ontario we have contracted a bilingual, temporary, full-time COVID-19 Business Relief Advisor to assist business owners throughout Akwesasne, Cornwall, and the United Counties of S.D. & G. Her role will be to help applicants navigate all the programs available for support through the hardships of COVID-19.

This new team member is Doreen Ashton Wagner, long-time North Glengarry-based entrepreneur who co-founded and operated Greenfield Services Inc. until 2016, when the company was sold to an employee. She has since founded Business Sisters / Consœurs en Affaires, a bilingual social enterprise dedicated to building happy, resilient rural communities by connecting women entrepreneurs so they can learn and thrive.

As COVID-19 Business Relief Advisor, Doreen will meet with business owners to guide them through all the COVID-19 related programs and services. With her experience as a business owner herself, her purpose is to help entrepreneurs identify what they might qualify for and assist them through the application and referral process. If you have any questions or are interested in utilizing this new service please contact Doreen at dwagner@mycommunityfutures.ca or call 613-932-4333 X105
