Confidential BC Tourism Labour Shortage Economic Impact Survey

Go2HR has retained Grant Thornton and Econometric Research Limited, two professional consulting and research companies, to measure the economic impact of labour shortages in the province and in your region. The following survey, and resulting information, will be used to:

  • Gain a solid understanding of the economic potential of tourism and hospitality businesses in British Columbia ("BC");
  • Gain a solid understanding of how labour shortages are impacting tourism and hospitality businesses; and,
  • Estimate the potential economic losses to regional and provincial economies resulting from tourism and hospitality businesses that are unable to fill certain positions and, as a result, are not able to operate at full capacity.

Your experiences and views are very important to the successful completion of this study. Please be assured that all your responses will be kept completely anonymous and confidential. Grant Thornton and Econometric Research Limited will only provide aggregate survey results in the report. Neither go2HR nor your association will be able to view your responses to this survey.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Kindly complete the survey by February 12th, 2016.
