Niagara's Employment Inventory

Niagara Region is conducting its annual inventory of local employers. Employment inventories are considered a best practice in other GTA communities. It's a strategy Niagara is adopting to improve our global competitiveness.

Between May 6 and August 30, representatives from Niagara Region will be conducting in-person surveys with businesses across Niagara. Results from the survey will contribute to a comprehensive understanding of Niagara's current employment landscape by providing reliable data on employment numbers, types of employment and job / industry locations.
