A community organization that seeks to change the relationship between Prince Albert residents and alcohol launched an online survey Wednesday.

The Prince Albert and Area Community Alcohol Survey runs until April 30.

Results from the survey will be used to guide the local Community Alcohol Strategy Steering Committee.

According to Canadian Institute for Health Information statistics for 2016, the rate of hospitalization caused entirely by alcohol is 76 per cent higher in Prince Albert than the national average and 22 per cent higher than the provincial average.

The survey is open to anyone living within a 40-kilometre radius of Prince Albert.

The Community Alcohol Strategy Steering Committee also made a request for $60,000 over four years from the city at a council executive meeting earlier in the week.

The survey can be found here.
