The Town of Oliver would like to thank the Province of B.C. for the new financial relief measures announced yesterday morning (April 16) by Ministers Carole James and Selina Robinson. These measures are a positive step to mitigating the economic hardship for people, businesses and municipalities during these difficult times. Two relief items that Minister Robinson requested be highlighted to our residents are the available Temporary Rent Supplement as well as the Property Tax Deferment Program available to individuals 55 or older and families with children. I encourage you to visit the Town’s COVID-19 website for current information on all Provincial announcements as they become available.
