A series of mini documentaries showing the importance of community in the face of hardship and uncertainty.
With local bars and restaurants closing as COVID-19 arrives in North Bay, New Ontario Brewing had no choice but to quickly pivot its entire production line to survive the global pandemic and make a difference in the fight against COVID.
In this episode of Northern Resiliency, see the effects COVID had on our local brewery and get a glimpse into its impact on North Bay’s food and beverage industry. See the dedicated people who worked hard together to push through the pandemic in our first Northern Resiliency success story.
The life of an artist is never easy and neither is the work behind our local performing arts centre. When everything shut down, the arts community was slammed by restrictions and left to figure out what to do. North Bay’s Capitol Centre and the Kennedy Gallery fought hard during the endless months of the global pandemic to provide an escape for the community, as well as an anchor for local artists to continue to do what they do best. Their story has so many perspectives, from administrative to technical, with so many working hard behind the curtain, but each of them shares something in common: Resiliency.
When the lockdown initially hit, we expected to spend two weeks at home and then get back to our everyday lives. But as the doors stayed shut and we all had to stay put at home longer and longer, it got tough to keep going for many people.
Getting outside, especially in the summer months, was an escape for most people looking to get out of the house and do something. For Cheapskates, the lockdown should have been devastating, but people wanting to get outdoors was a lifeline.
Follow us as we look into the challenges faced by Cheapskates throughout the pandemic and what effect the lockdown had on business and the community, especially when it came to cycling.
