The CSRD wants to hear from you!  

This page will host surveys to the public to gain a general sense of prevailing opinions on regional issues, strategies and projects. Our current surveys (if any) are listed below. Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think!


CSRD Firefighter Recruitment Survey

Recruiting and retaining firefighters is an ongoing challenge for the CSRD. So we wanted to hear from residents in the communities served by rural fire departments about what might help us do a better job.

Firefighter Recruitment Survey


Cannabis Retail Store Survey 

The objective of this survey is to gather opinions, comments and feedback from residents who feel their interests may be affected by the opening of a cannabis retail store in their community. The data collected from this survey will be provided to the CSRD Board of Directors to assist in informing their decision to either support, or not support the issuance of the proposed cannabis retail store licence. This decision will then be communicated to the LCRB for their consideration in approving, or not, the cannabis retail licence.

This survey is being used to gather information on a proposal for a non-medical retail cannabis store to be located at 2798 Balmoral Rd. in Blind Bay of Electoral Area C in the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD). This is the same property in which the Blind Bay Village Grocer and Shell Fuel Station are located. For more information about the proposal, click here.

The deadline for submission is December 9, 2019.
