The third annual business confidence index survey has been distributed to all Timmins Chamber of Commerce members.
President Rob Knox says what results from it will help candidates for city council in the October election arrive at principles and priorities to support small business.
It also asks how businesses dealt with the pandemic, and how they pivoted during the height of COVID-19 and as they recover.
“There are opportunities to provide suggestions where the city could perhaps help and mould their policy for moving forward,’ Knox points out. “So it’s a collaborative survey for sure.”
The deadline to respond to the survey is July 29th.
“It’s critical that we continue to engage with our membership to understand their financial health and wellbeing, for their vision of Timmins,” the president adds, “so that we can make informed advocacy efforts on their behalf.”
That advocacy is to all levels of government as well as the provincial and national chamber groups.
