LakePulse Questionnaire
By 2021, LakePulse will produce Canada's first national assessment of lake health.
By completing this questionnaire, you can help us to create online tools that suit your needs for lake health and water quality data.
Your responses are confidential: specific information about you and your lake will not be shared; your name and email address are not linked to the survey.
Tell us about your interest in lake health and management.
