The Orpheum Theatre in Estevan is one of 62 Canadian businesses selected for a $10,000 grant, as part of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s Canadian Business Resiliency Network’s Small Business Relief Fund. It is open to chamber members across the country.
The fund was established to help businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and plan for their recovery.
“The Estevan Chamber recognizes that our business community has faced so many challenges over the past several months. We know that this $10,000 grant will never be enough to cover the loss that the Orpheum Theatre has experienced but hopefully it gave some relief and hope as they look to re-open,” said Jackie Wall, the executive director of the Estevan Chamber.
The Orpheum Theatre has been a valued member of the Estevan Chamber of Commerce for many years and the Estevan chamber said it is proud that the local members are supported by the Canadian chamber.
The Orpheum is one of Estevan’s oldest businesses. It opened in 1914.
