Survey welcomes public feedback

Residents are being asked to take part in a short survey as part of the Welcoming Communities initiative.

Residents, multicultural groups and immigrants are being asked to take part in a short survey as part of the Welcoming Communities initiative.

The program is hosted by the Social Planning Council and funded by the provincial government.

“The survey will help us to understand what types of multicultural activities the community would like to see in Vernon”, said Annette Sharkey, Social Planning Council executive director.

The results of the survey will be used in a feasibility study currently under way to explore the need for a multicultural centre in Vernon where people can meet and be connected to multicultural events.

“Our agency would like to see an informal space for new immigrants to meet, develop friendships and share their cultural experiences,” said Carol Wutzke, with Vernon and District Immigrant Services.

Community members are encouraged to take part in the survey at until Dec. 15.
