The Gabriola Health and Wellness Collaborative and Sustainable Gabriola have come together to develop a community wide survey to understand Gabriolans’ experiences during this pandemic, to find out what we have learned, and how we can use this opportunity to do things differently. Your participation in the survey will help us, as a community, to strengthen our responses and shift to different behaviours that will continue to serve us well in the months to come and give our community an opportunity to rethink our future. 

The survey consists of 16-22 questions and will take 10-15 minutes to complete.
 
Your responses are completely anonymous, and we cannot trace them back to you. To further protect your anonymity, we will combine your responses with those of many others and summarize them in a report which will be made available publicly. 
 
SurveyMonkey, the survey tool we use, stores information on servers located outside Canada. Data collected by SurveyMonkey may be subject to the laws of foreign jurisdictions including The USA Freedom Act in the United States. If you would like to take part in this survey, and do not wish to do so online, please contact BeyondRecoveryGabriola@gmail.com for a paper copy of the survey.
