The District of Muskoka is updating its Second Home Study this summer and is asking all owners of seasonal homes to participate in an anonymous online survey by August 31st.
The Second Home Study provides valuable planning and program development information for the District and Area Municipalities as well as for local businesses and organizations.
The 2017 will update the previous Second Home Study completed in 2013. Survey questions ask about the size and characteristics of second home households; time spent in Muskoka; visitation; plans for moving to Muskoka permanently; shopping preferences; and priority service needs.
The 2017 study update also collects important new information related to the seasonal population’s use of health care and waste management services. The results from these questions will help inform future program and service development across Muskoka.
