Political Congratulations on our 5th Anniversary

Our COVID-19 Response for Economic Recovery

Dear business community,

During this difficult time the Scarborough Business Association remains committed to helping you network, learn and find opportunity.

We have made some commitments to help you through this disruption. Please visit a list of our diverse business disruption programming here. We are actively seeking new ideas to help the community as we shift our focus to economic recovery.

We will get through together if we are united as a business community. Help each other. Learn from each other. And plant the seeds so we can hit the ground running to help the economy  recover.

United we stand Scarborough! - Andrea Hazell, President, SBA | Check out the new Scarborough Business Learning Hub
