The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis that is touching everyone in Canada in very different and real ways. Right across Saskatchewan, families are struggling with the additional strain this pandemic has caused, whether it is health, social, or financial in nature. During such a turbulent and uncertain time, we at K+S Potash Canada (KSPC) want to ease, not add to this burden.
KSPC proudly supports many small, locally-based Saskatchewan vendors and suppliers. That includes Indigenous-owned companies in and around Treaty 4 Territory where our Bethune mine is located.
We recognize the economic fallout of COVID-19 can especially hurt small, local businesses like the ones we work with. So, we’re temporarily accelerating the payment of their invoices starting this week. We know there are employees, families, and communities reliant on cash-flow, and we want to make sure our payment gets to them faster.
Terry Bird, Manager of Indigenous Relations for K+S Potash Canada says this immediate cash flow helps ensure our small, local business partners can keep working, and communities can get through this turbulent time.
“KSPC’s temporary expedited payment changes will assist local Indigenous community businesses and suppliers with an added cash flow that is needed to flow through to support their families and communities, including elders during these upcoming months.”
If this pandemic has taught us one thing, it is how reliant we are on one another. KSPC needs our small, local vendors and suppliers, and we want to support them. We are going to get through this together.
