    Impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Onoway & District Chamber

    Like everyone else dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak, the Onoway & District Chamber of Commerce was initially significantly impacted.  Fortunately, we are moving back to normality.  Here is a summary of the current situation:

    • Our AGM, originally scheduled for April 9, 2020, was postponed and was held on May 21, 2020,
    • The Chamber Board of Directors has resumed regular meetings.   
    • Our administrator, Janet (janet@onowaychamber.ca), will be working from home but she will continue to be available by phone (see bottom of this page) and email to respond to member inquiries. 
    • Our very popular Facebook Live series has been resumed, using a new format.
