Island Enterprise Zone Survey

Here on Gabriola we share a commitment to preserve and protect our island community. The Gabriola Chamber of Commerce is a diverse group of entrepreneurs and family-owned enterprises who work together for the common good of our island community by providing services, support, and networking opportunities for businesses to succeed. We are thinking about ways to build our local economy while protecting the environment and ecology and we want to hear from you. This survey is about gaps and opportunities. We want to know what you think is missing – are there products or services you’d like to be able to get here? Are things you want to make or produce that you think the community could benefit from? We want to know if there are enough spaces for making and producing things in our community. What would it take to create new opportunities? And where would it make sense to create these opportunities?

Please watch our informational video and take the survey to add your voice!

This survey is open to residents of Gabriola, Mudge, and DeCourcy Islands.

You will need to enter a password to complete the survey. It is: Gabriola 2021 ***Please note the space in between the word and the numbers.***
