Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey

Council is calling on all its stakeholders, including registered persons and representatives of registered entities/facilities, as well as members of the public, to participate in its 2022 SAPC Public/Stakeholder Perception Survey and Communication Audit. This survey aims to assess perceptions of service delivery and communication efficiency, amongst others. Its results will help Council review how its services and communication efforts align with stakeholder expectations and, thus, initiate improvements in areas identified as seeking realignment.
