Burnaby Board of Trade pounds the pavement
Last week the Burnaby Board of Trade, in partnership with the City of Burnaby, conducted its first ever door to door survey to explore the issues that are top of mind for businesses in the Henning Drive neighbourhood of Burnaby.
Approximately 120 local business owners and managers were met by surveyors including BBOT President & CEO Paul Holden, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, City Councillors, BBOT Directors, and other prominent business leaders from the community.
“In the meetings I attended, most people there said their business was going pretty well, with very few exceptions,” said Holden. “The overriding sense that I got was, people really appreciated the initiative that was being taken to reach out face-to-face with businesses.”
