The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an unpredictable period for our economy and our local labour market. This survey seeks the expertise of employers, such as you, so that we can form an evidence-based view of the impact on employment in Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka over the near term as a result of COVID-19.

These questions are focused on the strategies you took as a result of the first lockdown, which lasted from roughly mid-March to mid-July, and what has happened since. We know these are still uncertain times and the next few months in particular will likely be a challenge. The purpose of the survey is to learn about the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic/lockdown for your workforce and about your recruitment and training needs.

This survey has 21 questions and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. You will have an opportunity to request a copy of the survey results at the end of this survey.
