Every three to four years, the City Council contracts with the Chamber of Commerce to conduct a Business Retention & Expansion (B, R & E) Survey targeted to local businesses that meet business attributes and profile established in the City's Economic Development Strategy.
The 2012 survey results were presented to Council and provided detailed information on the local business climate and potential areas of focus for the City, the Chamber and other local and regional partners to support and assist in the expansion of the local economy. The 2012 B, R & E was a primary source in the drafting of the 2013-14 Strategy and the 2016 survey results will be used to develop further strategy updates in the coming months.
