NEWS RELEASE · 25th April 2010
Skeena Diversity Society
Amongst all the mail and newspapers in your mailbox, you may find a brown envelope from Skeena Diversity Society this coming week. We urge you not to chuck it but open it. We at Skeena Diversity would like to ask for a few moments of your time to participate in the attached Terrace-wide survey.

In developing programs to make Terrace a more welcoming and inclusive community under the WelcomeBC program, the Society is mapping the community to better understand who we are – our cultural experiences and backgrounds, skills, talents and interests; ideas and dreams. We want to find out how people connect with one another, measure existing strengths and discover barriers. We will be using the survey to identify gaps and opportunities for a broader meaningful engagement of our citizens and an improved quality of life.

Skeena Diversity Society would like to work with you to shape the future of Terrace – we believe in the strengths and creativity of a diverse and inclusive community.

You have an opportunity to share your concerns as well as your hopes and dreams for Terrace. No identifying information will be shared publicly but the overall findings will be presented to the community, City Council and other decision makers to better inform community planning.

We appreciate your time to participate. If you are interested in a chance to win a gift certificate to a local restaurant, please complete the tear-away portion of the survey and return it with the completed survey before May 28th, 2010.

Drop off Surveys at:
• Visit Skeena Diversity Society's booth #6 at the upcoming Trade Show on April 30 – May 2 at the Terrace Arena or
• Visit the Skeena Diversity Centre located at 4617 Lazelle Ave, during opening hours (currently Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 2 pm).
You will be able to pick up additional surveys for other family members.

For more information, contact Skeena Diversity Society at 250-635-6530, by email at info,,, or visit us online at

This Project is made possible through funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. It is part of the Welcoming and Inclusive Communities and Workplaces Program through WelcomeBC. For more information , visit them online at

Survey of Terrace
Comment by Dr. Bruce Bidgood on 26th April 2010
This sounds like an interesting opportunity. I am sure that City Council would appreaciate it if you could share your results with local government. We are always looking for new ways to become better informed about our community. I will look forward to completing mine.

Thanks Sasa, Dyani and the Board of Skeena Diversity.
