It is a local law firm that helps families through residential fires and floods across Canada. They have not laid anyone off, like other law firms in Guelph. They are supporting people who are in desperate need of help, like those in Fort McMurray who have recently faced flooding on top of the pandemic. The founder of the firm (full disclosure: my husband Fy Virani) and his Family went through a tragic fire in Guelph in 2014, which led to the creation of the firm. Sadly, a family member passed in the fire and many others were hospitalized. It’s a great local story of a devastating event leading to a positive outcome that is having a national impact.

This business just started in January of this year. I enrolled my son into the program of learning to code and they have been so helpful to him. They have staff to help the kids learn. They shut down when the schools did just before March break. They quickly developed a way to teach the kids at home. They kept the staff working and they interact through Zoom. The kids are still able to earn their belts. Thank you Code Ninjas you are Awesome.

A Restaurant with a Speakeasy! Locally owned by brothers who grew up in Guelph. They have put a new spin on having a relaxing space to have a few drinks with friends in the Speakeasy, while still having a nice restaurant to have a pub style dinner! The brothers have taken the business outside of the box during this time of physical and social distancing, and are now offering a virtual cocktail experience with their Sitr Crazy Cocktail tutorials. They have also opened up their door to a fast, easy take out service that features a limited, but delicious menu. They have done these things in part to keep business active, but more so to be able to retain their staff. In addition to all of this, Brandon and Spencer continue to give back to their hometown through donations to charities and the healthcare workers. Kudos to the Gin Mill!
