Celebrate Canada's 150th in Parksville!
 
Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 marks a significant milestone for our country. We have begun planning to determine how Parksville should mark the Sesquicentennial and we’d love to hear your ideas on how we can tie the past to the future, showcase Parksville in 2017 and create a legacy for future generations. We have created this survey to get us started and hope you will share your ideas and inspiration for 2017, provide your thoughts on what inspires you as a Canadian and how we can celebrate in 2017.
 
Looking for memories of Parksville in 1967...
We are also hoping to have residents share their memories from 1967, especially those who lived in Parksville in 1967. We realize many of you will not have been born in 1967 and many more were living somewhere else in 1967. You can just skip over the first three questions and start with what it means to you to be Canadian. 
 
Thanks for participating in this survey and sharing your ideas. We will publish comments and ideas on our website in October. Deadline to complete this survey is September 30.
