Community branding survey drawing great response

Sarnia-Lambton, Ontario, Canada – June 27, 2013 – The response to an on-line community branding survey to gather residents’ opinions on Sarnia-Lambton is garnering an excellent response. Since the survey launch on June 16, over 930 people have gone online to help bring our image into focus by providing their honest opinions on Lambton County.

“Our consultants have been amazed at the response the survey is receiving,” notes Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership general manager George Mallay. “Communities much larger than ours have not had the response that Sarnia-Lambton residents are providing to our local survey. Our community branding partners are doing an outstanding job in working together to get the message about the survey out to our residents.”

“We’re thrilled at the response,” says Mallay. “Lambton residents are proving once again how deeply we care about our community. A huge thank you to everyone that has participated so far. We hope those that haven’t taken the branding survey will have a chance to do so before it closes on July 4th.”

Crafted to determine Lambton County’s strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and opportunities, the ten-minute survey is a key part, along with a wealth of other research that has taken place, in developing a community brand for marketing Lambton County to visitors, residents, and businesses.  

All who live and work in Lambton County are invited and encouraged to participate.
