Community Visioning Plan


The Municipality of French River is conducting a survey to gather citizen and visitor input as we work to create the municipality’s long-term "Vision" for the community. We invite you to complete the survey either online or in-person to voice your opinions, share your ideas and contribute to the decisions being made in French River. 

Surveys are confidential, and the information gathered will aid in creating a Visioning Plan document. This Visioning Plan for the community will help determine Community Objectives and set attainable and measurable goals for French River. 

The survey is being conducted online and is also available in hard copy format for those who do not have Internet access.  

Public Survey

Please Note: The survey opened on July 26th and will now be made available until September 5th at 4 p.m.
