Accelerate Business Recovery: A Virtual Hub (the Hub) is sponsored by Desjardins Insurance and created by the Aurora Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Canadian Government, Employment Ontario, the Ontario Government, York Region and the Town of Aurora. The Hub is designed as an all-in-one, self-serve resource to provide training and support for businesses like yours, that may be looking to pivot, strengthen digital marketing or rethink their business model as they emerge from the pandemic.  Live and interactive sessions will also be available through the Hub with a variety of Business Consultants including our project business consultant Raffi Sethian.
