Manitoba’s Provincial Parks Cottager Survey

Posted on: March 17, 2021  |   ,

The Parks Branch of Manitoba Conservation and Climate has asked us to share the following important message with our members.

Travel Manitoba and the Parks Branch of Manitoba Conservation and Climate are conducting a study evaluating Manitoba’s provincial parks. One component of this review is to consult with and survey provincial park cottagers.

To conduct this study,  Travel Manitoba and the Parks and Protected Spaces Branch of Manitoba Conservation and Climate are conducting a review of Manitoba’s provincial parks. One component of this review is to consult with cottagers to understand their experiences in the parks and how Manitoba’s provincial parks might be improved.

To conduct this study, Travel Manitoba has engaged a team of independent researchers. Prairie Research Associates (PRA) Inc. is a Winnipeg-based research company and has been tasked with conducting the survey portion of the study.

The survey will take about 10 to 20 minutes of your time depending on how you use the parks. Participation in this survey is strictly voluntary. Any information you provide will be treated as anonymous and not be associated with you in any way. The results of this survey will be reported in aggregate form only.

Dean Amundson, Chairman of the Manitoba Provincial Park Cabin Owners Association referenced the survey and shares some of the MPPCOA’s thoughts in his submission to the April Echo publication.  Since the Echo will not be published until after the closure of this survey, please click here to read his message.

To complete the survey, click on the link below or copy and paste the link into your browser.

Upon completion of the survey, as a thank you for taking the time to participate, you will be asked if you would like to be entered into a draw for a $500 Visa gift card courtesy of Travel Manitoba.

NOTE: To contact as many park visitors as possible, we have been reaching out in a variety of ways. For example, individuals who purchased park passes and/or made campground reservations in the recent past may have received an email invitation.

If you have already been contacted through some other means and have completed the survey, thank you, there is no need to do the survey again.

 

If you have any questions specific to the survey or you do not wish to participate in the research, do not hesitate to contact PRA Inc. at this email (admin@pra.ca) or toll free at 1-888-877-6744. Please indicate that you are calling in regards to the Manitoba provincial parks survey.

Thank you in advance for your help.
