What Ontario Business Thinks

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) launched its Quarterly Policy Surveys (QPS) in 2012-2013.

The response from members has been overwhelming.The OCC generated nearly 7,000 responses to the surveys, for an average of 1,700 responses per survey.

This makes the QPS the largest and most significant survey of business opinion in the province - maybe in the country.

This report, What Ontario Business Thinks 2013, is intended to provide you with a breakdown of Ontario business opinion on the issues that matter to them.

They've identified the following thematic questions:

* How confident is Ontario business?
* What are the 'hot button' issues and where does business stand?
* What are business priorities and how has the OCC acted on them?
* How serious is the skills gap?
