Community Support/ Review
The Kincardine business survey was conducted in mid-2017 to survey businesses that are located in the Municipality of Kincardine. The survey expected to provide a picture of the local business climate and identify major issues that may be impeding the success or expansion of local business operations. Information gathered through this online survey was designed to enable the municipal and county Economic Development Offices and their community partners to assist local business in identifying and realizing growth potential and opportunities. The survey was designed to reflect perspectives of local business owners and or operators on the economy, the community, local business factors, community service agencies and local government services. A tourism component was added to the business survey to assess the efficacy of tourism in Kincardine and its possibilities for growth. The survey was also intended to assess tourism as an economic driver for Kincardine and create an inventory of recommendations for future tourism program development to be considered over the next three to five years.
