Your Voice Matters: Two Weeks Until the Nova Scotia Quality of Life Survey Closes

NOVA SCOTIA — The Nova Scotia Quality of Life Survey is still active in communities province-wide for two more weeks. While over 10,000 surveys have been completed online and submitted by mail, Engage Nova Scotia expects there are a number of people who have intentions to fill it out and may need an extra prompt—Survey participation closes on July 5, 2019.

With this survey, you are helping to build a more complete picture of what matters to Nova Scotians. In the Fall of 2019, a Quality of Life Report will be created for ​your unique region of the province​. By filling out the survey you are helping to ensure that issues most important to the health and wellbeing of you, your family and your community receive better attention.

Danny Graham, Chief Engagement Officer of Engage Nova Scotia explains, “Traditionally, much of the information we use to make decisions that affect our daily lives are based on economic data. Those data are not wrong – they are just incomplete.” He continues, “With this survey, you are helping us build a more complete picture of what matters to Nova Scotians.”

If you would like help filling it out, access to a computer, or if you did not receive an invitation and you would like an online code or paper copy, all of these resources are available at your local library. Similarly, the Strait Area NSCC campus has surveys and supports available, as well as La Société Saint-Pierre in Chéticamp, which has French copies.

Engage Nova Scotia hopes people will encourage anyone who has received an invitation to complete the survey to do so before the closing date. If you did not receive a survey invitation and would like to participate, please contact Engage Nova Scotia at 902-407-2582 or After completing the survey you can enter for a chance to win one of 25 Sobeys gift cards (valued at $400 each!).
