CKy: Chatham-Kent to the Power of Young People (15-39 years)
The Municipality of Chatham-Kent gained feedback from young people on living in Chatham-Kent, through the CKy Survey.
The Chatham-Kent to the Power of Young People (CKy) Survey was open for the month of June in 2017, for young people aged 15-39 years old to share their thoughts on living in Chatham-Kent to assist on-going resident attraction and retention efforts.
Thank you to all those who provided feedback in the survey. Results will be shared later in 2017.
CK Survey of Young People 2012
The first CK Survey of Young People was conducted in June 2012. The survey returned a phenomenal 1,092 responses and the feedback received has helped determine how best to allocate resources in order to attract and retain people (including young people, newcomers and active retirees) to Chatham-Kent.

The findings from the survey have been synthesized into four key focus areas for the Resident Attraction and Retention (RAR) Division:
1. Employment (promoting the employment opportunities in CK)
2. Entreprenership (promoting starting a business and being self-employed in CK)
3. Education (promoting studying, training and co-ops & internships in CK)
4. Exchange and Interaction (Helping people learn about CK and get connected through networking and making community connections)
All four areas are wrapped up in promoting the overall Quality of Life available in Chatham-Kent.
The RAR Division works with a wide range of community partners to help make all of this happen. Most importantly, we seek continuous feedback from the young people who are connected to Chatham-Kent. Please join in on the conversation through our social media channels, let us know what you think by emailing or calling us, tell your friends and family about life in Chatham-Kent, and of course, complete the CKy Survey!
