Yes. In mid-October, all residents in Strathcona County will be invited to complete the same household survey and it will not require an access code. Throughout the summer and carrying into fall, our Recreation and Culture Strategy Ambassadors visited several community events, gatherings and facilities to have conversations with residents and to capture what recreation and culture opportunities they most value in the community. As well, we will be conducting surveys and interviews with local groups and youth soon.

In addition to the household survey that all members of Strathcona County will have the opportunity to complete, a specific survey will also be designed for youth and community groups. Representatives from Community groups will also be invited to attend a workshop in 2019 to dig deeper in a community conversation.
It is important to us that we hear from all those in the community that currently access recreation and culture services, those who don’t but would like to in the future, and those that may not have plans to in the future.
