Youth Engagement Panel

One of the recommendations of the City's Youth Engagement Strategy was the creation of a Youth Panel, an online space where young people - aged 18 to 30 - can provide feedback to the City on topics of interest to them in a quick and easy manner. This Panel is completely voluntary. As a member of the Panel you will receive notifications via text message when there are opportunities to provide feedback to the City. Members of the Panel who actively engage will have opportunities to win prizes throughout the year (small tokens of appreciation). These will be randomly selected and the winners posted here. If you have suggestions for topics you would like to be engaged on, post them below in the Ideas tool.

    In a previous survey, we asked you to select what is important to you in your City. 77% of you listed Cost of Living as important, and 20% of you ranked it as one of the top 3 things the City should focus on. As a follow up, we are interested in your perspective on one element of Cost of Living – Affordable Housing. 

    Affordable Housing is defined by having all your housing costs (including related expenses such as taxes and utilities) total less than 30 percent of your pre-tax income. Approximately 1 in 4 households in St. John’s live in what we would define as “unaffordable” housing using this measure. 

    The following questions relate to your experience with Affordable Housing and your needs for housing in general. The information could be used as we work with community partners and developers to influence future builds.

    This survey will be open until May 9th.
