Businesses asked to help the City of Hamilton plan for the future by completing the Annual Employment Survey

The City of Hamilton is calling on all small and medium businesses and large enterprises to respond to the Annual Employment Survey. The survey conveys information to the City that is vital to planning for future facilities, initiatives and services for citizens and businesses across Hamilton.

The 2016 survey will allow the City of Hamilton to continue to:

Monitor the extent, nature and location of employment and land use;
Track the effectiveness of local employment initiatives; and,
Monitor changing economic conditions in the City of Hamilton's employment districts

Summer students will be canvassing across the city, meeting with business owners, and completing surveys.

For business owners' convenience, the survey may also be completed online at:


Information is collected directly from employers and the data is treated as strictly confidential. Survey information will only be released in aggregate form to show employment
patterns without revealing information on individual businesses.

For more information, please call 905-546-2424 Ext. 1292.
