City's Annual Employment Survey

Help the City of Hamilton plan for the future

City of Hamilton employment survey - manufacturing, retail, restaurant, accommodation, institutional, agriculture

The 2018 Annual Employment Survey is open!

This information is vital to planning for future facilities, programs, and services for residents and businesses across the city.

The first survey of businesses, buildings, and employment within the City’s Downtown happened in 2010. In 2013, it expanded to cover all of the City’s employment, commercial and rural settlement areas. 

This survey helps us to:

  • monitor the extent, nature, and location of employment and land use
  • monitor changing economic conditions
  • track the effectiveness of local employment initiatives
  • address immediate and long-term planning projects

"Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to participate in the Annual Employment Business Survey. The City of Hamilton carries out the survey every year in order to look for business growth, trends and changes. We need this information in order to support the continued success of your City's commercial, employment and rural settlement areas. This survey allows us to plan better, think better and envision new ideas based on this direct feedback.
