The County of Barrhead, together with the Town of Barrhead, Community Futures Yellowhead East, and Barrhead & District Chamber of Commerce, have compiled the resources that are available to employees and businesses in our region faced with financial challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis.


COVID-19 has presented workers with layoffs and enforced self-isolations.  As a result, an unprecedented amount of citizens are in need of financial assistance.

Below you will find a compilation of the resources available for those individuals who can no longer work due to self-isolation, those caring for children now out of school or child care, and those who are caring for someone who is suffering from COVID-19 or have contracted COVID-19 themselves.

Employers and Businesses

This is a difficult time for businesses and employers.  The requirement for the public to socially distance means that storefronts are seeing fewer patrons, and other businesses are experiencing a significant decline in requests for their products and services.  While some businesses are able to retool and adapt to the changing market, others are left with their hands tied - laying off staff.
In order to assist our local business community, we have compiled a list of services being provided by the provincial and federal governments in support of economic sustainability.
