Survey to take pulse of Windsor-Essex County

A survey by the WindsorEssex Community Foundation will measure residents’ views of local issues, providing an opportunity for UWindsor students, faculty, and staff to make an impact, says Wen Teoh.

Director of the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre), she volunteers on the foundation’s board, and calls its Vital Signs survey a catalyst for community dialogue about “who we are and where we’re headed.”

Questions seek respondents’ opinions on the natural environment, safety, transportation, education, housing, employment, cultural outlets, and more. A report will combine the results with national, provincial, and local data to measure where assistance is needed to make the community a better place to live, work, play, and grow.

“The survey result will help our community leaders identify and address priority issues in our community,” says Teoh.
