Please participate in this survey if you have a connection to the Junction Triangle or surrounding area (if you live, work, or play here).

Deadline: Please complete the survey by 12:00am midnight on Sunday, April 25, 2021

JTCAN (Junction Triangle Community Action Network) has been invited by the City to give our input for the Bloor St Planning Study (St. Helens-Perth) on what community services and facilities are needed in our area. We want to hear what your needs are for community services and facilities in the Junction Triangle and surrounding areas. JTCAN will compile a summary of the data and provide it to the City Planning team. Our goal is that everyone connected to the Junction Triangle will have access to adequate services and facilities.

Community Services & Facilities (CS&F) include child care, community recreation, public libraries, schools, and human services (often free services that support community members, such as mental health programs, food banks, youth and senior services or programs).

Please share this survey widely with people who are connected to the Junction Triangle and surrounding areas.

All questions are optional. Please feel free to pass any questions that you prefer not to answer.
This survey is completely anonymous.
Data will only be considered and shared at the group level, in a summary, with no personal information attached.
