Citizens of Niagara Invited to ‘Have Their Say’ in Online Poll
Niagara, Ontario. The Niagara Research and Planning Council (NRAPC) is calling all citizens of Niagara to vote in an online quality of life poll, based on the twelve sectors of the Living in Niagara 2011 report. The report provides a snapshot of quality of life in our region, and calls for Niagara-wide collaboration to invest in Niagara’s assets and address gaps requiring attention.
“The poll can be found at www.livinginniagarareport.com“, states Mary Wiley, Executive Director of the Niagara Research and Planning Council. “As results build over time, they will add to the bounty of information available on the site, for anyone doing Niagara-focused research and planning.” Responses will also help to guide construction of the Niagara Knowledge Exchange, a digital platform for sharing relevant, reliable, data, to strengthen Niagara-focused decision-making.
The sectors of the Living in Niagara 2011 report are:
- Arts, Culture and Heritage in Niagara;
- Transportation and Mobility in Niagara;
- The Environment in Niagara;
- Learning and Education in Niagara;
- Housing and Shelter in Niagara;
- Crime, Safety and Security in Niagara;
- Health and Wellness in Niagara;
- Work and Employment in Niagara;
- Economic Development, Poverty and Prosperity in Niagara;
- Belonging, Volunteering, Giving and Leadership in Niagara;
- Getting Started in Niagara; and
- Recreation and Sports in Niagara.
The Niagara Research and Planning Council (NRAPC) is made up of community volunteers, and is supported by Niagara-wide community partners. The Council’s vision and guiding principles were developed through input from residents of Niagara. NRAPC’s mission is: Generating knowledge that drives community action.
