BUSINESS SURVEY: Open until November 15, 2017

Through past surveys and personal contact with our local businesses, we have identified the importance in providing support and services to the businesses in our jurisdiction. In 2017, The Town of Morinville, Sturgeon County, Morinville & District Chamber of Commerce, and Community Futures Tawatinaw Region collaborated to provide training in the areas identified as being the most important to local businesses.

We would like to hear from you to provide training courses in 2018 that are relevant your business' needs. Please take our 2 minute survey by clicking the link below.

Those who participate in the survey will be entered to win a free enrollment of their course of choice!
