Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

Are you a small business owner? Are you friends or related to one? The City of Hamilton’s Economic Development Division, in partnership with Workforce Planning Hamilton , has launched an enhanced Employer One survey to understand the needs of Hamilton businesses and organizations over the next year and quantify the impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic.

In collaboration with the Hamilton, Stoney Creek, and Flamborough Chambers of Commerce and Hamilton’s 13 Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) are endeavouring to reach as many business owners/operators in Hamilton as possible to understand how the ongoing pandemic has affected their businesses and operations.

The Employer One survey has 22 questions and will take business owners/operators about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. 

It is anticipated that in addition to quantifying economic impacts on the 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.
