What is important to you?

Abbotsford Community Foundation survey seeks to discover what issues are most pressing for locals

The Abbotsford Community Foundation wants to know what is important to locals in their community.

The Abbotsford Community Foundation wants to know what is important to you.

The ACF is helping to conduct research to measure the state of community in the region and are seeking out locals views on what issues are most important.

The BC Community Survey, which will be used by the ACF to collect data is anonymous, and takes around 10 minutes to complete.

The first Vital Signs survey in Abbotsford was completed in October of 2013, and looked at the gap between the rich and the poor, housing, health, getting started (focusing on youth and those who are new to the community), belonging, learning, and food security.

Those issues were then revisited in 2015. Another six separate issues were looked at in surveys in 2014.

To participate in this year’s survey, visit surveys.givingopinions.ca/s/BC_Community_Survey.

The survey closes on July 5. For more information on the survey contact Susan McAlevy at 604-850-3755 or smcalevy@abbotsfordcf.org.
