Welcome and Thank you for Participating!


The Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association has been committed to protecting the natural environment in the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula for 20 years. This year, the Biosphere was awarded a grant by Environment and Climate Change Canada to help community members of the Northern Peninsula lower their home energy costs and reduce household carbon emissions.

By participating in this 10-minute survey, you will be providing essential data on the energy efficiency of homes in the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula, and our community’s awareness when it comes to important environmental issues.

The information you provide in this survey will be used to better our community. Specifically, it will be used to:

1) Enhance local home energy efficiency, lower residents’ home energy bills, and reduce carbon emissions by helping community members access financial and informational resources.

2) Help increase number of skilled contractors doing home energy retrofit work.

3) Pursue future investments that can further benefit residents of the Northern Bruce Peninsula.

As a thank you, your name will be entered into a draw to receive one of three $100 gift cards generously donated by Hellyer’s Foodland in Lion’s Head, Peacock’s Foodland in Tobermory, and The Easy Farm in Ferndale.
