Navigating Grand Erie:
Survey focuses on transportation needs of workforce
Access to transportation for workers to get to and from work is an workforce issue in Grand Erie.
The Workforce Planning Board is studying transportation and transit needs, especially between the region’s six communities: Brantford, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Six Nations and New Credit.
Workers who do not have a vehicle or access to transit face barriers to employment. Businesses may also find the lack of transit a barrier to attracting and retaining workers.
Navigating Grand Erie: Transportation Survey looks more deeply at these issues. The survey focuses on people’s experience and needs across the region, both those who currently use transit and those who do not.
The survey will be live throughout the Fall of 2020.
People who complete the survey can enter their name to win a tourism-related prize provided by: Brantford Tourism, Haldimand County Economic Development and Tourism, County of Brant Economic Development and Tourism, The Heart of Ontario, and the Southern Central Ontario Region Economic Development Corp. (SCOR).
