Enhancement Agreement Surveys

The first survey in our consultation process for our next Enhancement Agreement is ready to roll and we are seeking feedback from all stakeholders in education in Burnaby.  This first survey looks to collect baseline information that will help indicate where all stakeholders feel we are at in terms of meeting the goals outlined in the first Enhancement Agreement, while at the same time allowing for the indication of strategic areas of focus for goal development for the next enhancement agreement.  We appreciate your time in completing this survey and look forwad to sharing the information at our community gatherings.

Burnaby Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services is in the process of reviewing their Youth Services Model.  An important part of this process is gathering feedback from youth, community organizations and parents. They are asking parents with youth 10-18 years of age to help with this review by completing a quick survey.  Please click on the link below to go to the website to do the survey online.  Once there, please click on the green ‘Parents’ button in the middle of the page.  Your feedback is valuable and will help to ensure that Burnaby continues to effectively meet the needs of our youth.  Please contact Kristine Lewis, Coordinator Youth Recreation Services, 604-320-2220 or if you have any questions.
