Business Retention & Expansion (BR + E) Survey

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 (All day)

The Municipal District of Greenview, along with Community Futures West Yellowhead, have partnered to officially launch a new Business Retention & Expansion (BR + E) survey for the Hamlet of Grande Cache.  Both parties want to better understand the future plans and needs of local Grande Cache businesses and how business owners/managers view the community as a place to do business. The information from the survey will be used to plan future economic development activities focused on the top priorities of local businesses.

MDB Insight, an economic development consulting firm, has been hired to assist with the project. MDB Insight will be working with the project team to review the completed surveys for challenges and opportunities that the local business community is facing. Businesses are encouraged to participate in the telephone survey and since selection is random, they may be contacted between May and July 2019. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

Economic Development Manager, Kevin Keller, with the MD of Greenview says that “Greenview is committed to supporting local businesses and growing our economic development initiatives.  Since acquiring the Hamlet of Grande Cache, we want to gather baseline information to help establish the business’s priorities in the community to help guide our future planning.” 

The project launched in May 2019 and is scheduled to last until July when all the results of the survey are gathered and analyzed.
