Early Years Services in Fort St. John are guided by the community

The Fort St John Early Years Centre, in partnership with the Family Friendly Coalition, wants to learn about the experiences of families raising children in our community. The information collected will be used to improve access and information to services, or potentially create new services where they may be missing.
This survey is 21 questions long and will take approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
If you would like to be entered into a draw to receive a prize please enter an email address at the end of this survey.
