Due to the pandemic, many small businesses have suffered or shuttered forever. How are local small businesses being considered, consulted, and supported as part of this transit expansion project?

Answer from Metrolinx: Metrolinx recognizes the importance of supporting businesses and jobs throughout the city, especially considering the challenging environment the pandemic has created for small businesses. Metrolinx is committed to ensuring local businesses stay accessible and successful throughout this important project, which will bring more people into and out of downtown to live, work and unwind.

Metrolinx will do this by partnering with Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) and local businesses on shop-local initiatives as well as working with construction teams to keep access to businesses clear and to post signage and other promotional materials. Metrolinx will also stay in close contact with local businesses through open houses, construction liaison committees and community offices to allow for a free exchange of information between the public and Metrolinx staff.
