This event also marks the official launch of DBOT’s Annual Business Survey. This survey plays a pivotal role in ensuring the needs of Dufferin businesses are addressed by all levels of government. It also helps to shape the advocacy work your Board of Trade will undertake this year. Once completed, survey data will be shared with our municipal, provincial, and federal government officials and our partner organizations to address the concerns and priorities of the Dufferin business community. Local respondents have the opportunity to win 1 of 3 $50 gift cards to a Dufferin business!
