Citizen survey

The Citizen Survey is conducted to gauge public satisfaction with municipal programs and services and to gain an insight into citizens’ service priorities. Responses are weighted by age, gender and city-wide distribution to accurately reflect Kelowna’s population. Results are benchmarked against other local governments. 

Insight gained by this research helps us make important decisions regarding planning, budgeting and issues management.
