How do you feel about Bowen life? Let BIM know in the 2019 Island Survey

Back in 2017, Boweners gave island quality of life an average 4.5 points out of five in the municipal Island Survey.

Eighty-nine percent of respondents said that they lived full-time on Bowen and 79 per cent said that they owned and lived in their home.

One can find all sorts of interesting information about the makeup of the island in the sort-of-regular survey. But only if islanders complete the questionnaire.

The 15-ish minute survey is now available on the Bowen Island Municipality website and is open until October 11. The survey covers topics such as quality of life,  transportation, the environment, housing, emergency preparedness and the island's economy. 

"The intent is to collect relevant, Bowen-specific data that will complement Census data, in order to inform Council’s decisions on services, support grant applications and to help anticipate demand,” said a press release from the municipality Friday afternoon. “The survey will also provide baseline information for year over year comparisons.”

It is an anonymous survey that can be completed online or alternative formats. To complete in an alternative format, contact BIM at 604-947-4255 or at
