Posted: 2018-11-15 10:01:31 By: hbr

The Town of Gravenhurst’s Economic Development Team is opening up the lines of communication with the 4th Annual Business Survey.  The information and data received through these annual surveys with business owners is one of the ways the Economic Development Team set priorities and create projects annually that support businesses and foster growth in the community.

Since its inception in 2015, the program has shed light on many local challenges, including workforce attraction and retention.  Recent initiatives such as Welcome Packages and three newly developed Workforce programs aimed at finding employee housing, employment for trailing spouses and integration into the community are all a result of the feedback that has been received. 

Between mid-November and December, the Economic Development Team will be contacting businesses via email, by phone and/or in person to collect data and feedback which will be analyzed and formulated into a statistical report that outlines success and challenges in Gravenhurst.
