Council Asking Non-Essential Service Providers to Close Business

The Listuguj Chief and Council and the Emergency Response team are jointly urging businesses who provide non-essential services to close amid the increased risk of spreading COVID-19. 

Council is asking all non-essential service providers to close business by 12 p.m. noon Friday, March 27, 2020. Businesses that can close sooner are strongly encouraged to do so.

Only businesses offering the following essential services can remain open:

  • Convenience stores
  • Cannabis retailers
  • Gas stations
  • Repair services (construction, electrical, plumbing, and heating)

These additional measures were not taken lightly but were deemed necessary to ensure the public health and safety of our community members. We would like to thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these difficult times. 

If you are a business owner with operations within Listuguj Lands and you would like to get up to date information regarding emergency management measures, sign up for our business email list by contacting Natalia Caplin at
