The Winkler Community Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Vital Signs 2024 Community Survey, set to open on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. This initiative seeks to gather the opinions and experiences of the residents of Winkler and the RM of Stanley  (ward 1)  to learn more about the people who live here, and to inform community development, efforts, and decisions.

The survey, accessible online, via smartphones, or in paper form, will be available until Wednesday, May 22, 2024. The survey link is available on the Winkler Community Foundation website and printed versions can be found at specified locations across the community.

Taking an estimated 15 minutes or less to complete, the survey is an important tool for providing a clear snapshot of how our community is doing and builds on the success of previous Vital Signs surveys conducted in 2012 and 2018. Its results will be shared with the community and will help shape the upcoming Vital Signs 2024 report.

To show our gratitude, survey participants have a chance to win 1 of 6 gift cards to local businesses totaling over $1000 in value. Entries into the raffle will follow the completion of the survey, ensuring that all responses remain confidential.
