Information Sheet

To understand Haligonians' perceptions of neighbourhood change, a telephone survey of 465 residents was conducted between April 8, 2017 and May 25, 2017. Overall, survey results show that Haligonians are quick to note changes to the built environment and recognize widespread construction and infrastructure renewal over the last five to 10 years. They also observe improvements to the city's economy and increased social and cultural diversity. At the same time, Haligonians are somewhat divided in their perceptions of change to the natural environment, and less clear on changes occurring at the neighbourhood level. When these changes are perceived, Haligonians see them in a positive light.
