A collaborative undergraduate student research group from the University of Calgary and Mount Royal University has developed a questionnaire for rural residents. The survey asks questions regarding your experience with, and perception of crime in your community.

Results from this survey will be used in a presentation for Mountain View Council and the RCMP at the 2019 ACCPA conference in Canmore. We ask that you participate in the survey and circulate it to your neighbours.
