The Richmond Hill Board of Trade is here to serve you. For the moment, however, we’ll be serving you from a distance.


All staff are working from home at least until April 5 except in the case of specific appointments for document certification. We want to make sure everyone stays safe.


We’re still busy, though, reaching out to each of you to keep you informed, see what information you need and to promote your business within the community. We’re in regular contact with all levels of government so if you want to make sure a particular issue is raised, please let me know!


We also provide weekly Zoom call-ins (Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m.) with government and other representatives who have useful information to share. Please join us! We can accommodate 100 participants per call.


I know we’re facing really tough times, now – but we’ll get through this together!

Karen Mortfield

Executive Director
