15-Minute Neighbourhoods Survey

Message from the City: 15-Minute Neighbourhoods Survey

The City of Ottawa’s goal is to become the most liveable mid-sized City in North America. To this end, the City has adopted the 15-minute neighbourhood concept, defined as “…neighbourhoods where you can access most of your day-to-day needs within a 15-minute walk from your home, on sidewalks and pathways, including when using a wheelchair or other mobility aids.”

We’d love to hear what makes a successful 15 minute neighbourhood for you! Please take a few minutes to complete this survey (External link), it will close on September 4th, 2020.
