Community Gambling Survey

Contact(s)

A casino is set to open in North Bay within the next couple of years.

To better understand the impact the casino may have on the community, we are holding two community surveys. One survey is for residents and the other is for business owners. Both surveys require respondents to be 19 years of age and older and situated in Nipissing and Parry Sound districts.

Please take 5-10 minutes to share your thoughts by participating in one of these anonymous surveys. Your response will help us support the community through advocacy, education, and programs.
