As part of the survey, respondents are asked what kind of housing they currently living in, how often they spend living in the RDKB in a normal year, and how stable their current housing situation is.

Respondents who complete the survey will be entered in a draw to win a one-hour ice rental at the Beaver Valley Arena, a family punch pass with 10 admissions to the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre, or a chance to win a pickleball entry level kit with two paddles and two balls.
