COVID-19 Resources for Businesses

This page gathers resources and information for businesses in Pembroke regarding government programs, services and supports available during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grants for Businesses and Property Owners

Pembroke has a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) to assist in community revitalization and to achieve economic, community planning, and urban development goals through encouraging private-sector investment. In August 2020, a new grant category was added - the COVID-19 Business Support Grant.

Business Spotlight

The City of Pembroke has lauched the Business Spotlight series. While the COVID-19 pandemic has been very challenging to navigate for local businesses, it has also been an opportunity for innovation and growth. We have seen many local businesses pivot to adapt to the changing environment to meet the needs of their customers. Each week, the City of Pembroke will highlight a local business and the changes they have made in the business over the last few months. If you know a local business who is adapting, let us know!
