Community Liveability Survey
My researchers and I are asking for
your assistance in helping us better understand what makes a truly
sustainable community and how it functions.
As many of you know, we have developed
a short and uniquely Canadian questionnaire that we would like you to
complete so that your views and feelings on your community can be added
to those of the growing list of Canadians who have already
It should only take a few minutes of
your time and to say thank you, we will enter your name to win one of
five iPOD Shuffles®. Your responses could well help shape the world you
leave to your children and grandchildren.
Regardless of geographic location, our
communities are formed by the individual choices we make each day:
joining the school computer club or sports team, supporting an
environmental group or politician, moving to a new home, choosing a
school, or joining a local church group.
Our decisions to live more sustainably
in our communities are often shaped by the community resources
available to us such as public transit, access to shops and
restaurants, water and sewer, friends and family, health care, schools,
services for seniors, and recreational opportunities. But do we define
our communities or do they define us?
