Members of the community are being invited to participate in a social needs assessment currently being undertaken by the Town’s Family and Community Support Services department.

With the town’s increasingly diverse population growing at around five per cent per year, the assessment will help Town staff better understand the community’s social needs and plan for the future accordingly.

Residents are asked to provide input via a 15-minute confidential online survey, and to encourage friends, family members and neighbours to do the same before the survey closes Aug. 25.

The survey can be accessed online at www.sylvanlake.ca/public-notices.

The Town’s last social needs assessment was carried out in 2012.
