How Friendly Are We?


The City’s Community Services Department (Recreation and Culture Division) is in
the process of collecting information to support an application for the Playworks Youth Friendly
Community Designation.

Play Works is a movement of interested parties committed to helping youth by encouraging and
promoting a greater investment in youth play in Ontario. (

As the lead applicant, the City recognizes that youth are vital and an important resource in our
community. We need the comments and opinions of youth ages 13-19 to gather feedback.
Sault Ste. Marie youth in this age group are encouraged to complete the online survey at – City Hall Surveys – Youth Voice Survey.

Your feedback will assist to develop a comprehensive inventory of youth-focused initiatives,
opportunities and future needs that can lead to positive change.

Youth Opinions Count – share your thoughts by participating before the October 6 survey deadline!
Comments and suggestions can be emailed to [email protected]

    I agree we are friendly but are we the friendliest?
