On June 15 2020, District Council directed staff to explore ways to promote inclusion, celebrate diversity, ensure equity and combat systemic racism in Muskoka. The resulting project has been branded as the IDEA Project (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Racism).
To better understand the nature and scope of IDEA issues in Muskoka, the District is launching a Community IDEA Survey. This survey is the first step in a series of community engagement activities which will allow all residents to share their experiences, thoughts and concerns. In turn, this information will provide the basis for a Community IDEA Action Plan.
As a visitor, year-round or seasonal resident of Muskoka, you will be asked to share your experiences and thoughts on what is needed to create a more inclusive community.
It should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete the survey and at the end you can choose to be entered to win one of four $100 gift cards. This survey will be open until November 30.
Please share this survey with your colleagues, friends, family and other contacts. Your support in amplifying the District’s outreach efforts will be appreciated. The more information we gather the clearer our path forward!
