Orillia Launches Survey to Find Out How Best to Communicate and Engage with Residents

How do you want the City of Orillia to communicate and engage with you? Complete an online survey and let them know.

The City of Orillia launched an online survey today to find out more about how residents currently source information about the City, how effective their current communications tools are and ideas for how they can communicate and engage with residents in the future. The short survey is available online at orillia.ca/haveyoursay and hard copy versions are also available at the Orillia City Centre, 50 Andrew St. S., and at the Orillia Public Library, 36 Mississaga St. W.

The survey is open from June 11 to July 2, 2018.

“The way people receive their news and information is evolving continually and the City of Orillia wants to make sure we are meeting the communication and engagement needs of our residents,” said Mayor Steve Clarke. “By completing this survey, you will be providing us with valuable feedback on how we can communicate and engage with you in effective and meaningful ways.”

Results of the survey will help inform staff what communication and engagement tools are the most effective for residents and potentially new ways in which we can connect with the community.

“The City is committed to providing accurate information and worthwhile engagement opportunities on municipal matters that impact the daily lives of Orillia residents,” said Gayle Jackson, Chief Administrative Officer. “Over the years, the City has greatly improved how we communicate with the community; but it’s important to check back with residents to find out what’s working, what isn’t and how they want us to connect with them moving forward.”

Individuals who complete the survey will be entered to win two Summer Flex Pacs to the Orillia Opera House Summer Season featuring three live theatre shows from July to August 2018, or one of two $50 gift cards for Parks, Recreation and Culture programs.

Residents requiring assistance completing the City of Orillia Communications and Engagement Survey can contact Jennifer Ruff, Manager of Communications, at 705-325-8929 orjruff@orillia.ca.
