President of GCCI, Carl Carter said, “We need many businesses to complete the survey so that we can see what is happening now in terms of business growth, as well as determine trends over the last six years”.

The most common responses over both surveys included: staff issues, decrease in work, higher costs, government issues and not buying local. “It will be interesting to see if the issues are the same. If they are, the Chamber will be advocating for more support from all levels of government and reassessing how the Chamber can assist businesses to overcome these issues”, Carl said.
