The survey is conducted under the authority of the Statistics Act, which ensures the confidentiality of all information collected. No individual responses or identifiable information will be shared with the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.  While participation in the survey is voluntary, it is important that all selected participants take part to ensure the information accurately reflects the views of residents in the community.
