What is your vision for Kitsumkalum?

Kitsumkalum is working on a comprehensive community plan (CCP) and gathering information from community members about your vision and goals for the future of Kitsumkalum. Your responses will only be seen by the CCP team, Heather Bohn and Tracy Sam. The topics for the questions come from the community, based on feedback at the CCP Launch (Sept. 12, 2015) and from the advisory committee.

If you have any questions or comments please get in touch with us:

SOCIAL ISSUES:
In the CCP, social issues includes things like families, celebrations, recreation, community events, safety, crime, animal control. We kind of use it as a catch-all for things that don't fit in the other sections (health, culture, education, economy, lands & resources, infrastructure & housing, and governance)

* 1. Do you think that our community is, in general, happy?

* 2. What do you think are the biggest social problems in our community? (i.e. lack of community unity, apathy, addictions, vandalism, etc.)

* 3. If we could improve the happiness and safety of community members, what should we do?

* 4. Here are some ideas of things we could do to improve happiness and safety in the community. Please rank them from 1 to 7 (1=best idea, 7=worst idea)

* 5. Do you have any ideas for how to address on-reserve vandalism and crime?

* 6. Do you have any ideas for how to address lateral violence, where community members are unkind and disrespectful towards each other?

* 8. Do you have any ideas for how to better support elders to be healthy and happy?

* 9. Do you have any ideas for how to better support children & youth to be healthy and happy?

* 10. If you had $1 million dollars to do anything you wanted to improve the safety and happiness of our community, what would you do with it?

* 11. If you had $10,000 to do anything you wanted to improve the safety and happiness of our community, what would you do with it?

* 12. If you had $100 to do anything you wanted to improve the safety and happiness of our community, what would you do with it?
