The Alpine Wage Relief Program

May 26, 2020

On June 1st, British Columbia's minimum wage will increase. This comes at a difficult time for businesses struggling with the COVID-19 crisis.

Alpine is proud to be on the front lines in this fight. We know the pressure many of our clients are under right now. We also understand the importance of helping to ease their burden. We have scaled back our services to help affected clients wherever possible. Our innovative disinfection protocols are helping keep our clients' employees and customers safe. Now we are launching a new initiative: the Alpine Wage Relief program.

Alpine is offering to absorb the minimum wage increase for struggling businesses. We will maintain current pricing for up to three months. After this period the minimum wage increase will apply. Of course, some of our customers may choose to accept the minimum wage increase. For those that do, Alpine will donate the equivalent value to the BC Children's Hospital.

The BC Children's Hospital is a leader in pediatric and specialist services. It is also BC's foremost children's health teaching and research facility. As a Canadian healthcare institution, its staff are on the frontline of the pandemic. Like our own employees, they are working hard to keep BC's population safe. Alpine is proud to continue our financial support of this institution.
