Please note the survey is now closed. Information will go to the September 8 Council Governance and Priorities meeting for discussion.

Background info:

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues in Canada and around the world the Town of Peace River is evaluating and updating our response. One of the issues being considered by municipalities across Alberta right now is whether to require the use of face masks for indoor public places. We understand that a rule like that would have wide-reaching implications and requires community consultation.

The goal of this survey is to hear from residents, businesses, those who shop in Peace River, and those who visit our town about their opinions regarding mandatory masks, as well as some voluntary options. Data collected from this survey will be presented to Town Council. It will be used to help determine whether the Town of Peace River pursues a mandatory mask bylaw, or some other option. A report on the data collected from this survey will be publicly available by the September 8, 2020 Governance and Priorities Meeting.

In addition to our main survey we have developed a second one geared towards business owners or operators. If you own or operate a business within Peace River, please fill out that survey as well.

Both surveys closed at 10 am on August 31, 2020.
