Business Impact Survey

The Town of Virden wants to understand the concerns among the local business community.

In addition, the feedback from Business will strengthen our ability to advocate on behalf of the Town with government decision-makers. 

In addition to this survey, a Managing Business Through COVID Form was created to allow Business to submit information regarding changes to hours, doing business differently, and communication. This will be compiled and shared through our website and social media channels.
