Reader Survey 2022

One of Edify’s goals is to be relevant to its readers who expect award-winning writing and design, and intelligent, entertaining information about the culture and lifestyle that define Edmonton and area.

This survey is a way to gather information about you as one of our readers, your preferences and purchasing plans, and basic demographic statistics.

We’ll also be launching a second survey about life in the city. We are offering several prizes for your participation: weekly draws for gift certificates and a grand prize of a smart & elegant bracelet, for those who complete both surveys. We appreciate hearing your opinion.

The information is for research purposes, and will only be used in combination with all other responses.

Any contact information you provide will be protected and only used for the purpose stated and with your explicit permission.

You will not be asked to buy anything today, or in the future, as result of taking this survey. It will take 5 – 6 minutes to complete.
