Another round of the Vital Signs survey has opened up in Squamish.
The Squamish Community Foundation (SCF) has opened another Vital Signs survey in hopes to collect data from Squamish residents. Before COVID-19, the foundation did the project every three years to help prioritize information that is important to locals to inform decision-makers.
“Knowledge from the local community is essential to ensure inclusivity and efficacy in data collection. In addition to the survey mentioned above, we will be hosting another community conversation event in February to help build knowledge and understanding on the issues that impact us most as a community,” reads the survey introduction.
“By gathering and having facilitated conversations on hot topics, we can build the most relevant framework of data collection for the 2023 Squamish Vital Signs Report.”
The last one completed in Squamish was in 2017, and the 2023 report is set to come out in May.
The survey takes five to 10 minutes and allows respondents to provide insight into their experiences.
It closes on Mar. 17, 2023.
SCF held the first community conversation for the 2023 report near the end of November at Brennan Park.
“Vital Signs uses local knowledge and data to measure the vitality of our community, to create conversations, and to encourage collective action.”
