Employment Survey

Let’s get down to business.

Employment Survey 2023

The City is conducting its annual Employment Survey targeting local businesses between May and August 2023.

The Employment Survey will help us learn more about current trends in our local economy and inform business support programming as we recover from the pandemic. The survey is optional, and local businesses are encouraged to share as much information as possible to help with this research.

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

All information is collected, stored and shared in accordance with the municipal privacy legislation and requirements.
