Notice of collection: telephone survey on growth and development in Guelph

The City is conducting a residential telephone call survey to gather information about the community’s perceptions and expectations around how and where growth and development will happen in Guelph over the next 20 years.

The survey is being conducted from December 3, 2019 to December 19, 2019.  Ipsos is contacting approximately 600 households within the City of Guelph.

Results of the survey will be used by City staff to build a plan to accommodate the population and employment forecasts outlined in A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (the Growth Plan). The Growth Plan was designed by the provincial government to promote economic growth, increase housing supply, create jobs and build communities that make life easier, healthier and more affordable for people of all ages. Municipalities must update their Official Plans to conform with the provincial Growth Plan. This phone survey is one part of the City of Guelph’s work toward updating its Official Plan; there will be more opportunities to get involved in this important project in early 2020.

Your participation is voluntary. All individual responses will be kept confidential and will be used for further program development and optimization only.

Personal information, as defined by Section 2 of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (MFIPPA) is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001, and in accordance with the provisions of the MFIPPA.
