SPECTRUM worked with the OK2BME team at KW Counselling Services to create a questionnaire on 2SLGBTQIA+ issues for all of the candidates in the Waterloo Region municipal election. The questionnaire was sent on September 21, 2022 by email to all of the candidates for whom we could find email addresses. A post was made on social media the same day inviting any candidates who had not received the survey to reach out to us for the link. If you are a candidate and did not receive the link but would like to complete the questionnaire please email us at info@ourspectrum.com.

Thank you to the candidates who took the time to complete the questionnaire. Below are the responses we have received to the questionnaire. We will add responses here as we receive them. Before being published, we confirmed with the candidates that the answers accurately reflect what they want shared with the community.
