The City of Airdrie is conducting a city-wide Social Well-Being Survey starting today until March 31.

This survey is to understand residents’ experiences in Airdrie regarding their connection to the community, what obstacles they may face in community participation and how these factors affect their day-to-day life. 

Residents are advised to watch for their invitation letter to complete the survey to arrive in the mail in the first few days of March. Each household's PIN number, which is contained in the mail and will be necessary to complete the survey, should be kept private.

“Social well-being is an indication of how supported, connected and included people feel in their community,” said Chris Esselmont, a social planner with the City of Airdrie. “This survey will help us to understand our community and inform our actions to help us utilize our resources more effectively in order to meet any shortcomings.”

In order to ensure that responses are collected from a diverse group of individuals, the City requests that the household member who has their birthday next and is at least 15 years old fill out the survey.

If you do the survey, you have a chance to win a prize! The prize is one of five annual family passes for Genesis Place.

At the conclusion of the survey, instructions for entering the draw will be provided. Participants must retain their invitation letter and PIN on hand until the survey and draw entry are finished since the specific PIN on each household's invitation letter is necessary to enter the draw.

All information gathered during the survey, including responses, is kept private. Before the end of the year, the findings will be gathered, summarised as percentages, averages, etc., and sent to the City Council and administration. The data will only be used for statistical purposes.
