  • Abrigo Centre (Donate)

  • Supporting Local Businesses

    This morning, I hosted a call with Business Improvement Associations from across our Davenport community to discuss the challenges they are facing, their thoughts on government supports and what more the City can do to help them. Small businesses are essential to the vibrancy of our communities and are operated or employ countless people in our community. I want to thank all who took the time to join the call.  There were many great ideas which I will be bringing...
