The annual Employment Survey collects information on businesses and employment in the Region.

2020 Employment Survey – We want to hear from you!

The 2020 Employment Survey is taking place between September 14 and December 31, 2020. A team of surveyors from the Region’s Planning Services Division will contact businesses in Halton to gather information about:

  • the number of employees working at the place of employment;
  • the type of employment that’s taking place there; and
  • the type of business activity at the place of employment.

Our surveyors will be following public health guidance and taking precautions, such as primarily conducting surveys over the phone or email, wearing face masks in public places and practicing safe physical distancing.

We also encourage businesses to take our survey online.

Business representatives can now complete the 2020 Employment Survey questionnaire online!

Help the Region plan for the future!

Each year, Halton Region collects information on businesses and employment in the region through an Employment Survey. Information gathered through the annual survey helps the Region:

  • monitor the region’s economic health and assess trends in economic development (e.g., local economic activity and land use patterns)
  • monitor and implement land use targets
  • support water, wastewater and transportation master plans

The Employment Survey is an important resource that helps Halton Region effectively plan for growth, stimulate job growth and economic development as identified in Halton Region’s Strategic Business Plan 2019 - 2022 (PDF file).

All data collected from the survey is consolidated and released to the public though the Employment Survey Results report. Individual business information is neither identifiable nor published in the report.
