Ontario's BRE program:https://www.ontario.ca/page/business-retention-and-expansion-program

Oh yes, OMAFRA has the BRE program. I did the course but I wanted to find someone for the urban cores. They do a lot of work with rural communities so that's great.

Are there common situations that come up in surveys
Ashlie Ross

At my previous job, we always asked to help them enroll in the MWBE database.

Our process is to send out an electronic survey through survey monkey that gathers mostly quantitative data but there are some open ended responses. This is anonymous but people can list their name and business at the end as an option. After the online survey we follow up with interviews through visitations. The interviews might be around 6 open ended questions and sometimes we might have 3 different interview questions based on information we want to gather in a particular industry. This helps build trust through community conversations and you don't need to be so strict about asking the questions in a particular way because the interviews are qualitative responses.

Thank you Jason!

For surveys I know sometimes the questions lead the business to land on a certain answer. I forget the right terminology but I have seen that in some surveys so it makes the answers bias. I have always done interviews and focus groups. This will be my first time doing the surveys.

02:03:09
I believe you're referring to leaving questions. Avoid these kind of questions when building your survey.

*Leading Questions
Alia Abbas
02:05:19
Yes, thank you. That's what I saw. It made me wonder that they didn't provide too many options.
Alia Abbas
02:14:12
I kept a landline.

Ohio has the best BRE surveys they still do it.
Alia Abbas
02:16:01
How can we do that
Jason.Guidry.Halifax Partnership
02:17:18
Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question.
Alia Abbas
02:19:12
Sorry. I was just wondering, would it be good to paper surveys rather than online. Ohio does paper surveys and still get responses from people.
Alia Abbas
02:19:29
OMAFRA stated that for BRE surveys, Ohio is a leader in it.

02:19:58
I'll speak to this in the next section.
Alia Abbas
02:20:07
I wanted to know how would another city or town get to that level being recognized for their BRE programs similar to Ohio.
Alia Abbas
02:20:16
Thanks Jason!

I have to leave in 3 minutes because I have another meeting. I do want to make sure I understand the Homework assignment. It says we need to review Regional Enterprise Networks Start-Up Guide (February 2014). I don't see this listed on the resources for the course. Where can we find this?
Ashlie Ross
02:27:19
Thank you! See you Tuesday.
