Clarington’s Diversity Advisory Committee has developed this short five-minute survey to gather feedback from Clarington residents about diversity and inclusion in our community. As our community is growing, it is important to reflect on the growing needs of residents as this is critical to building a healthy community.

Diversity is about the variety of unique dimensions, qualities and characteristics we all possess as individuals and could include but is not limited to factors such as age, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities and qualities, sexual orientation, race, income and many more. People feel included when we create a culture that strives for equity and embraces, respects, accepts and values difference.
 
Thank you in advance for taking the time to help Clarington become a more diverse and inclusive community by completing the following survey. It is up to you how much information you provide, and all answers will be kept confidential.

Who we are
Clarington’s Diversity Advisory Committee is an advisory body that serves as a liaison between the Municipal Council and residents of Clarington on matters of diversity and inclusion. The Committee strives towards a safe, welcoming and inclusive Clarington, where differences are celebrated and the voice of everyone is heard.

Why are we doing this
The goal of this survey is to determine how diverse and inclusive our community is, to understand the different needs of various groups, and differing perspectives that reflect the varied makeup of our community in order to formulate the best advice to Council and municipal staff.

The responses gathered in this survey will help Clarington’s Diversity Advisory Committee create a work plan and fulfil its role to raise awareness by celebrating our community’s differences and strengths, recommending policies and providing advice to the Municipality of Clarington on diversity and inclusion.
