Employment Survey

Let’s get down to business.

Employment Survey 2024

The City is conducting its annual Employment Survey targeting local businesses between May and August 2024. By participating in the survey you are allowing the City to better understand your business, identify local trends and target business support.

Staff will visit local businesses in-person to conduct the survey. They will wear shirts branded with the Invest in Guelph logo and identify themselves as working with the City of Guelph.

The survey is optional and all information is collected, stored and shared in accordance with the municipal privacy legislation and requirements.
