Employment Survey

The City of Guelph Employment Survey is an annual in-person survey of business establishments in the city’s industrial, commercial, and institutional zones. The program objective is to build a robust, local business database that can inform economic development programming, growth planning, targeting connections to business support, facilitating outreach and engagement, and measuring economic trends.

Labour Force Survey

Employment trends serve as a crucial indicator of a community’s economic health. Fluctuations in employment over time can signify shifts in economic growth or decline across all sectors or in specific types. This report, therefore, plays a significant role in understanding the economic landscape of the Guelph Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) by presenting a comprehensive analysis of labour force trends.
