Thriving Communities Survey

How can a community become more resilient so when change happens, it's easier to adapt, innovate, and thrive? Together, your feedback will help us uncover the answers.

Thank you for your consideration in participating in the Thriving Communities Labour Market Study for Merritt. We believe it is critical to have your voice in this survey, as well as the voice of your employees, neighbours, friends. There are three streams for the survey:

  1. Business Owner
  2. Employed
  3. Unemployed

Whether you’ve lived in Merritt your whole life, or are a relative newcomer, sharing your feedback gives unmatched insight and information to build a strategy for the Merritt economy today and in the future. Recommendations will be developed and broadly shared so local businesses, organizations, and educational facilities can look to provide skills training, build partnerships, and make strategic investments. The goal: a thriving community to the benefit of all community members.

Deadline for participation is January 20, 2020.
