Cape Breton, NS – The Nova Scotia Quality of Life Survey is still active in communities province-wide for two more weeks. While over 10,000 surveys have been completed online and submitted by mail, Engage Nova Scotia expects there are a number of people who have intentions to fill it out and may need an extra prompt. Survey participation closes on July 5, 2019.

With this survey, participants are helping to build a more complete picture of what matters to Nova Scotians. In the fall of 2019, a Quality of Life Report will be created for each unique region of the province. By filling out the survey, participants are helping to ensure that issues most important to the health and wellbeing of Nova Scotians, their families and their communities receive better attention.

“Traditionally, much of the information we use to make decisions that affect our daily lives are based on economic data. Those data are not wrong – they are just incomplete,” Danny Graham, Chief Engagement Officer of Engage Nova Scotia, explains. “With this survey, you are helping us build a more complete picture of what matters to Nova Scotians.”

For Nova Scotians who would like help filling their survey out, lack access to a computer, or who did not receive an invitation and would like an online code or paper copy, all of these resources are available local libraries across Cape Breton Island. Similarly, the Strait Area and Marconi NSCC campuses have surveys and supports available.

Engage Nova Scotia hopes residents will encourage anyone who has received an invitation to complete the survey to do so before the closing date. If you did not receive a survey invitation and would like to participate, please contact Engage Nova Scotia at 902-407-2582 or Participants who submit their completed surveys prior to July 5 will be entered for a chance to win one of 25 Sobeys gift cards (valued at $400 each).
