Sunshine Coast Community Foundation

Survey-Schmurvey – how many more do you have to complete?

Surveys are the only way community leaders can gather public opinion on the Sunshine Coast.  Please take the time to complete the Vancouver Coastal Health “My Health, My Community” survey. We will be convening community dialogues to report the results of this survey and to formulate recommendations.

We also need your opinion on the status of our community metrics for our tri-annual Vital Signs Report. Please join the Vital Signs Survey Panel!  We are looking for concerned citizens on the Sunshine Coast community who care to be heard about issues and are willing to commit to doing 2 -3 eight minute surveys a year for 3 years.  Please fill out the online panel application.
