Town of Antigonish Business Survey - "Improving our Economic Development Potential"

The Town of Antigonish has partnered with the Eastern Strait Regional Enterprise Network, the County of Antigonish, the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce, and the Downtown Business Association to identify ways of improving the economic development potential of the Town of Antigonish.

This survey is intended to collect feedback from residents, business owners, and community leaders on issues pertaining to: understanding the perceptions of our business climate and business community; identifying municipal priorities; finding ways to better promote our Town and community; and, creating a business improvement district (BID). It will be used to inform the Town of Antigonish's next steps as we continue our efforts to build a sustainable, vibrant community that people want to visit, reside, start a business, and raise a family.

The survey is designed to take five (5) to ten (10) minutes to complete, but your completion time can vary depending upon the depth of the answers you share with us. Your name, and any other personal identifying information, that you provide will remain confidential.

The survey will remain open until August 15, 2017, at 4:30 pm, so please share your feedback with us and spread the word! Once the survey has closed, the results will be posted on our website:
