    Please join the Board of Directors of the East Wellington Chamber of Commerce for a strategy meeting to discuss the new direction of the Chamber.  Your thoughts and ideas are valuable at this stage of our planning.  Please let us know that you will join us by signing up in the 'Events' section of this website.

    Secret Shopper Reporting Night - April 25th

    In December of 2017, an Opportunity Assessment of Wellington County, Ontario, was conducted, and the findings were presented in a two-and-a half hour workshop. The assessment provides an unbiased overview of Wellington County – how it is seen by a visitor. It includes a review of local marketing efforts, signage, attractions, critical mass, retail mix, ease of getting around, customer service, visitor amenities such as parking and public washrooms, overall appeal, and the area’s ability to attract overnight visitors. 

    Join us to watch a video of the secret shopper, aka Roger Brook's presentation to Erin.  Roger Brooks was engaged by the County to share his expertise in merchandising and retail marketing to improve the image and perception of our down town.  A few months ago, he visited Erin as a secret shopper and we think you find his recommendations interesting!   Click here for details.

    About the SWIFT Initiative


    SWIFT is a not-for-profit, collective broadband initiative that is funding the construction of an affordable, open-access, ultra high-speed fibre-optic regional broadband network for everyone in Southwestern Ontario, Caledon and the Niagara Region.

    The project is leveraging $180 million in combined investments by the federal and provincial governments and over $17 million in investments by municipalities across the region. To overcome our region’s longstanding broadband infrastructure gaps, SWIFT has developed a long-term plan to help more than 3.5 million Ontarians to connect and keep pace in a changing digital world.

     

     

    SWIFT Internet Usage Survey
     

    On behalf of the County of Wellington, we invite you to participate in a brief web survey to help build “broadband for everyone” in Southwestern Ontario, Caledon and the Niagara Region.
    When it comes to broadband Internet, there are considerable disparities in access and capacity between our rural and urban communities. The social and economic value of high-speed connectivity is set to explode over the next ten years, and unless we act now, those disparities will only grow wider and more serious in their implications. Your participation in this 15-minute survey is completely voluntary.


    To complete the survey, please visit https://performance.cira.ca/wellingtoncounty
