Duncan Cowichan Chamber wants a Collective Perspective

The Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce is urging its members to participate in a short survey

The Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce is urging its members to participate in a short survey that could assist them in their businesses over the coming years.

The survey, called Collective Perspective, is province-wide and is being administered by the BC Chamber of Commerce in an effort to gather real-time data on the level of confidence local businesses have on the current and future state of the province’s economy.

Julie Scurr, president of the Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce, said the survey’s results will give business and government leaders the perspective of what local businesses see as their opportunities and challenges over the next five years.

“All the province’s chambers of commerce are taking part in this survey and the information will be presented to the government at the BC Chamber of Commerce’s dinner with the province’s deputy ministers and business leaders on Nov. 9,” Scurr said.

“It’s a short, 10-minute survey that asks some great questions to help the government and business leaders make decisions based on information derived from our members that will impact all businesses in B.C.”

There is, however, a tight timeline to complete the survey and Scurr said it must be completed by Nov. 4 in order to present its information at the dinner on Nov. 9.
