The ESPORTA restores items contaminated by sewer, mould smoke and works wonders on removing contaminants contained in sporting equipment. This powerful and industry changing machine not only can keep the Warriors smelling fresh, it can restore irreplicable family helium’s and helps our industry remain environmentally friendly by keeping items out of the landfill. Restore vs. replace is our sustainability business practice. Fun fact about the ESPORTS; this internationally sold piece of equipment was invented right here in West Kelowna buy Winmar owners.
The BC government has released details of a sick leave program that will support workers to stay home when they are sick during the pandemic and afterward, including permanent paid sick leave. Amendments to the Employment Standards Act will bring in three days of paid sick leave related to Covid-19, such as having symptoms, self-isolating and waiting for a test result. Employers will be required to pay workers their full wages and the provincial government will reimburse employers without an existing sick leave program up to $200 per day for each worker to cover costs. The legislation will also create a permanent paid sick leave for workers who cannot work due to any illness or injury beginning Jan. 1, 2022. The number of paid sick days and other supports will be determined following consultations with the business community, labour organizations, Indigenous partners and other stakeholders.

Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission believes there are signs of economic recovery in its quarterly indicators report. The commission points to a 251% increase in building permits values and a 5.75% jump in housing starts in the first quarter of 2021 as positive signs. The first quarter unemployment mark this year was 5.73%, which is better than the first quarter mark of 5.77% last year, just as the COVID-19 pandemic was beginning. Building permit values totalled more than $629 million in the first quarter, which was up 170% compared to the first quarter of 2019, when more than $232 million in permits were issued. “The Q1 2021 economic indicators show signs of economic recovery and rising business confidence in many sectors,” COEDC manager Krista Mallory said in a press release. “The number of business licences issued in the region increased 4.7 per cent over the past year, and many businesses have shown strong hiring growth, with an increase of 14.5 per cent in job postings compared to pre-pandemic levels in Q1 2020.” The numbers still wallowing in the depths of despair are airport passenger traffic, which is down 80.4%, and job posting in arts, entertainment and recreation, which have plummeted 91% compared to this time last year.
