Canadian Chamber Launches 'Our Restaurants' Campaign


When the pandemic started, our restaurants were among the first and hardest hit. Despite their own challenges, they worked hard to support communities, those in need, and find new and innovative ways to safely serve customers. But despite this, many of our restaurants aren’t sure if they’ll be able to keep going – the numbers just don’t work when so many tables are empty and new costs are so high.

Just as our restaurants have always been there for important moments in our lives, now we need to be here for them.

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce has launched 'Our Restaurants'- a campaign dedicated to sharing stories and updates of one of the hardest hit industries by the pandemic. With the support of 14 food service businesses, representing more than 60 brands, we are putting a spotlight on the current situation faced by Canada’s restaurants amidst COVID-19 — high costs, fewer customers and government programs that are ill equipped for the unique, long-term challenges confronting the industry — and are urging governments to take measures to ensure their survival.

2020 Celebration of Excellence Cancelled


After thorough consideration, the Celebration of Excellence Committee, consisting of representatives from the Drumheller Rotary Club, Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce, Town of Drumheller and Travel Drumheller, has made the difficult decision to officially cancel the Celebration of Excellence for 2020.

Initially planned for June 11, the event was put on pause with the hopes of rescheduling in the fall. However, the event has an expected attendance of over 200 people and there is still uncertainty over whether or not an indoor event of this size and nature could be held in the fall. Various options to hold the event virtually were explored, but committee members agreed that this particular event has a much greater impact for the community when all can gather and celebrate in person.
