Edmonton Metro Resident Survey

Have your say, win a stay!

Explore Edmonton wants to hear from you! To show our appreciation for completing the survey, you will be entered to win a two-night stay at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald along with a meal at The Harvest Room or The Confederation Lounge. Scroll to the bottom of the page for contest rules and regulations.

We are currently in the process of creating a 10-year destination development strategy for the city.

Your input and perspective as a resident of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region is critical to create a successful strategy which balances the needs of the industry with the long-term health and vibrancy of our community. We want to ensure that your voice is heard in the long-term plans for Edmonton as a tourist destination of choice. We know that tourism development can have both positive and negative implications for the quality of life of residents. We believe that making Edmonton a better place to live, work, invest and learn will also make it a more appealing four-season destination for visitors and guests.

We would sincerely appreciate your time to complete a quick survey, which will take approximately 15 minutes. Survey responses are anonymous and your email will not be used for any other purposes.

Thank you.
