The Canadian Index of Wellbeing is conducting a survey to help shape healthy communities in Waterloo Region

The Canadian Index of Wellbeing is conducting a survey to help shape healthy communities in Waterloo Region

Wellbeing includes such things as: feeling safe, feeling connected to your community, being able to participate fully in the activities you love, and access to quality food and shelter, public transportation, the Internet, parks and the natural environment, clean water and healthcare.

The community is being asked to help determine priorities by participating in a community-wide wellbeing survey. The goal is to help with future planning and, ultimately, improve wellbeing in our community. This Waterloo Region Survey, funded by the Waterloo Region LHIN, Regional and local governments and community agencies, is requesting that one person (16 years of age or older) from households in Waterloo Region take the survey.

Please participate and complete a survey. Promote this survey with your family and friends in The Region. The more voices heard from, the better! There are also prizes to be won from participating!

The wellbeing survey is voluntary and anonymous.
