Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce

We are looking for information from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to join a OCC-Ryerson University research project. Our hope is to use the information we gather to make better programs to support SMEs in their skills training and hiring needs.

Participants will be using a virtual bulletin board to participate in the research, which will include some simple poll questions, as well as short and long answer questions. Participation can be made via text, audio, or video – whichever is more convenient.

SMEs admitted for the program will be given clear instructions and many days to complete the research, which they can do at any time. The program is designed to be as flexible and easy to complete as possible; we know participants are busy people and their time is valuable. Responses will be confidential (not even the other participants will see them) to ensure all participants are comfortable sharing sensitive or competitive data.

Our expectation is for the project to kick off in mid-October but we will be taking participants on a rolling basis through November, in order to reach a reasonable number of completed responses. If you are interested, please sign up below:
