Code of Conduct Community Survey

Your advice is needed

Help us become a safer and more welcoming place for everyone. By taking a few moments to complete our communitiy survey, you will provide us with advice to develop better tools and strategies to address some of the challenges we face. Your input will help us understand the values and priorities our community wants to see reflected in our Patron Code of Conduct. This survey is the third step in a community engagement process, following interviews with community organizations and a public meeting. A summary report of the information collected will be shared on our website later this summer.
