Poll of the Month

BC Business Magazine - - Feedback -

Given the num­ber of nat­u­ral dis­as­ters in North Amer­ica alone re­cently, in Oc­to­ber, Bcbusi­ness asked Mus­tel Group to sur­vey provin­cial busi­nesses on how pre­pared they are. Of the 203 own­ers con­tacted, “four in 10 think that they do have a plan, but still that leaves six in 10 that have no plans, for­mal or in­for­mal,” notes prin­ci­pal Evi Mus­tel. Those in the In­te­rior, which saw both floods and fires in 2017, were the most likely to have a strat­egy for keep­ing their busi­ness op­er­at­ing in an emer­gency: 62.5 per cent, com­pared to 26.5 per cent on the Is­land/coast and 40.1 per cent in Metro Van­cou­ver.
