  Your Lakes, Your Views 2017 is an important new survey that gathers the experiences and opinions of all who use the Muskoka waterways.

The survey is sponsored by more than 20 cottage associations in the Muskoka region, in partnership with Safe Quiet Lakes.

We want to know the positives about activities on the water and the lake environment, and what, if anything, detracts from your enjoyment the lakes.

The 2017 survey will compare results with the 2013 baseline survey, and will explore topical issues in greater detail.

We need to hear from everyone! In most instances we have just one email address per family. We rely on you to email the survey link to everyone who uses your cottage, to ensure that we hear a broad range of views.

Your responses are entirely confidential. Results will be analyzed by an expert research firm, ERIN Research Inc., and reported in aggregate form. No individual participant or their responses will be identified.

Safe Quiet Lakes will make the report available on its website, later in the summer season. Results will be shared with elected officials, the OPP, Transport Canada and all lake associations in the region.

1. Please complete the survey no later than Monday July 10, 2017.

2. If you prefer to do this survey on another computer, just forward this email to your other location and click on the link to begin.
