A Project to Benefit Canton Residents and Business Owners

As you know, the Canton community is second to none when compared to other similar sized communities. However, we know that there are always needs and challenges for improvement.

In conversations with community stakeholders, the Canton Community Foundation and Canton Chamber of Commerce leadership have learned of many challenges in our community. These challenges greatly impact the quality of life for all residents. We seek to work in new ways that will improve and strengthen the Canton community and are
essential in maintaining a thriving community for all to live, work and raise a family.

The Canton Chamber is asking for your input by completing a brief survey.  Through this survey, we hope to identify and prioritize the challenges that our community must face.


Take the Survey


The information gathered from this survey will be shared with a task force of community leaders who will use the survey results to:

1. Identify and prioritize major community challenges.
2. Design strategies for addressing the challenges.
3. Identify potential funding sources for strategy implementation.
4. Develop a strategic plan and direction for implementation.

Thank you, in advance, for completing and returning the enclosed survey. We remain grateful for your support of our community and assistance in identifying major community challenges. If you have any questions, please contact the following task force coordinators:
