During a time when we are all feeling the impact of COVID-19, businesses around the world are trying to cope with an unprecedented new reality. That reality for many Canadian businesses is a difficult one. It was one of the reasons why Desjardins teamed up with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to support the Canadian Business Resilience Network (CBRN), an organization that provides tools and resources to help Canadian businesses prepare, persevere and prosper.
