City Survey – Business Engagement and COVID-19 Impact Survey

To Our Valued Membership,

As a follow-up to the April 2020, COVID Business Impact Survey, and as recommended by the Mayor’s Task Force on Economic Recovery, the City of Hamilton’s Economic Development Division has partnered with Workforce Planning Hamilton to launch an enhanced Employer One survey to understand the needs of Hamilton based businesses and organizations over the next year and quantify the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.   In collaboration with the Stoney Creek, Flamborough and Hamilton Chambers of Commerce and Hamilton’s 13 Business Improvement Areas (BIAs), we are endeavoring to reach as many business owners/operators in Hamilton as possible.

The survey has 22 questions and will take businesses approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. It is anticipated that in addition to quantifying economic impacts on our local business community, the information collected will guide the development and implementation of activities, programs and initiatives to assist and support businesses in our community, uncover important local labour force data, trends and opportunities,  and strengthen our awareness of current local issues to help target our advocacy efforts with higher levels of government.

Finally, this information will be used to help guide and finalize the City of Hamilton’s 2021-2025 Economic Development Action Plan.
