Time Sensitive Invitation to all Chamber Members

Time Sensitive Invitation to all Chamber Members


The Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce has arranged the opportunity for members of our chamber to participate in a twice-yearly Business Confidence Index (BCI) survey to be conducted by Corporate Research Associates Inc. (CRA) and sponsored by TD Canada Trust. CRA has been conducting a Consumer Confidence Index in the region for the last twenty-five years and felt the time was right to have a business perspective on the economy in Atlantic Canada. CRA will produce a Business Confidence Index for each of the four Atlantic provinces and the region overall for comparison purposes.

There are two direct benefits to our Chamber members. The first is that all those participating in this survey (which will take about 10-12 minutes to complete online) will receive a copy of the results. The second is that, any chamber that has a minimum of 100 of their members or 50% of its membership participate, these chambers will receive their own Business Confidence Index for their members. There is no cost involved either for our chamber or members who participate in the survey. To view the summary report of the inaugural Atlantic Business Confidence Index, click here.

We would encourage all our members to simply clink on the link below and help us build our own Business Confidence Index. Please be assured that all individual company responses will be treated in complete confidence and only aggregated data will be reported. The survey will only be opened until Wednesday, January 11, 2017. Why not take a few moments and complete the survey now. This survey is only open to those in the private sector.

Should you have any questions on the survey, or require assistance accessing or completing the survey, please do not hesitate to contact Corporate Research Associates at [email protected].

Thank you for your anticipated support of this important initiative to develop an economic indicator for our chamber membership.
