Recover Canterbury aims to offer practical advice and information to help your business recover from the Canterbury earthquake. It is brought to you by organisations including the Christchurch City Council, Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce, CDC (Canterbury Development Corporation) and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.
On this site you will find information and links to answer your immediate questions, such as:
- The Government’s Earthquake Subsidy for wages
- Employee welfare
- Infrastructure and services
- Links with other businesses who may need or who may be able to offer immediate assistance
- A survey to assess the immediate needs of the business community – we need your feedback to ensure an appropriate Canterbury-wide support system is put in place by Government.
For more business information, check out the Business section on the library website. It included databases you can use from home.
We were advised by Local MP office Leanna Dalziel that we could make application for a one off grant of $350.00 to assist our small business re establish itself and that there was a form we needed to fill out in order to apply for this grant. Could you please advise what steps we need to make in order to apply for this grant.
