The City of Sault Ste. Marie and the Algoma Workforce Investment Corporation (AWIC) have designed a monthly survey to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on local businesses and organizations during and beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
The feedback will be used to communicate the needs of the community directly to municipal, provincial and federal governments. It will also assist with providing post-crisis recovery.
“The pandemic has had major impacts in the local area and around the world, on businesses, livelihoods and jobs,” says Tom Vair, Deputy CAO, Community Development and Enterprise Services. “Many businesses have closed or cut back service while others have switched to working from home. The COVID-19 business impact survey is one of several methods we will be using to get a better idea of how jobs and businesses have been affected. The information will help inform how our community will respond.”
The April survey will be available until April 30, 2020 and can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SSM_COVID
Respondents are asked to complete the survey only once and answer questions as accurately and completely as possible. The survey should take about five minutes to complete. If you require assistance to complete the survey or have any questions, please contact AWIC at [email protected].
