Information Sheet

To understand Charlottetown residents' perceptions of neighbourhood change, a telephone survey of 460 residents was conducted between May 24, 2017 and June 26, 2017. Overall, survey results show that Charlottetown residents observe an increase in ethnocultural diversity from immigration over the last five to 10 years. When asked about the changes within their neighbourhoods, a slight majority of participants believe that the social and cultural changes have been for the better. Charlottetown residents also report new construction and economic improvements in the city. Participants' opinions are mixed on changes to the natural environment and to their neighbourhoods.
