Ontario Sailing Strategic Plan Survey

As we shared last week, the first step in our 2021 strategic planning process is to gather information from the Ontario Sailing community through a survey. To date we have received 320 responses to the survey. Thank you to all those who have responded so far. 

The chart below outlines the breakdown of those responses by region. The survey will remain open until Friday, May 21st at 12 noon. We encourage you to participate and welcome your input and feedback.
(Unsure of your region, check the Ontario Sailing Website -
All responses to the survey are anonymous and confidential. The data is collected by the firm we have retained to facilitate this process. The Medalist Group will collect the data and aggregate it to create a picture for the strategic planning committee on what is important to Ontario Sailing stakeholders as we plan for the future. Your input is needed and valued. Thank you for caring about the future of sailing in Ontario.

Remember to please share the survey with as many in the sailing community as possible and encourage participation.
 The survey will be available to complete until Friday, May 21, 2021 at noon ET.
