The City of Saint-Lambert is updating its family policy and adding a specific component for seniors with the goal of becoming an Age-Friendly Municipality (AFM) (known as MADA, in French).

The following survey is intended to provide municipal stakeholders and their partners with a portrait of the current situation and to identify ways to improve the quality of life of families in Saint-Lambert. The results will be added to those obtained from the survey of seniors conducted in the spring of 2017.

It will take you about 20 minutes to complete the survey.

If you have difficulty completing the online version of the questionnaire, you can obtain a paper copy at City Hall (55 Argyle Avenue), the library (490 Mercille Avenue) or the recreation centre (600 Oak Avenue). A Word version is also available upon request.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Nadia Beauregard, Coordinator, Community Life and Seniors, at nadia.beauregard@saint-lambert.ca.

The family policy committee thanks you for your valuable collaboration.
