We get a lot of referrals from some of our great area partners, and people often call to ask about appointments for business help. And that’s great – we’re here to help. However, the good news is that you don’t always need an appointment. We work on an appointment basis when clients need to access our PCensus product – PCensus is a little more involved, and we’ve found that it works best when we’re able to sit down and have a good face-to-face conversation, although people are welcome to have a go independently if they wish. For everything else, though – no appointment required! That includes our Reference Group and Scott’s business listing databases, although please note that you need to be in the library to use Scott’s, and a staff member has to sign you in – sorry, those are the terms of our Scott’s subscription. And if you need demographic data, don’t forget that Statistics Canada has plenty of stuff available on their website. You can find basic demographics through Census Profiles and further info (income, education, etc.) through the National Household Survey.
Please note that PCensus appointments will be unavailable until after Labour Day. This blog will also be quiet(er) as well. See you in the fall!
