Economic Development Strategy Surveys Launched

Posted on Thursday September 19, 2019

The Town of Caledon is developing a new Economic Development Strategy to guide the Town’s activities over the next ten years and we'd like your input. 

Community input is an integral part of the process, to help inform priorities. Input will be gathered through online business and community surveys and a telephone business survey.  

A random telephone Business Retention & Expansion (BR + E) survey will help the Town to better understand the future plans and needs of local businesses and how business owners/managers view the community as a place to do business. The information from the surveys will be used to plan future economic development activities focused on the top priorities of local businesses and the community.

The Town of Caledon has retained MDB Insight, an economic development consulting firm to assist with the project. MDB Insight will be working with municipal Staff to review the completed surveys for challenges and opportunities that the local business community is facing.

Businesses and community members are invited to participate in the online survey via the Town of Caledon’s website www.caledon.ca/survey

Businesses are encouraged to participate in the random telephone survey and may be contacted between September 23 and October 21, 2019. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
