Winter has arrived this week, and while Brantford-Brant has been spared the snow of our neighbours, the cold, and the respiratory health issues, are very real challenges. Staff are completing final preparations for our 16th Annual Wine, Women, and Shopping event on Wednesday, a sold out event promising laughs, inspiration, and entertainment from keynote speaker entrepreneur Julie Cole, and local favourite Shawn Mulrain. A final ask for five minutes of your time to complete the Ontario Economic Survey from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, below. This will help to inform the advocacy agenda of the OCC to the province for 2023. The Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie has the Quality of Life survey it will be finalizing over the next few weeks as well. It is well worth the time to assist in gathering more localized data for labour planning needs.
