Waka Ama New Zealand Census 2018

Waka Ama New Zealand are excited to announce our very own Waka Ama Census 2018 We have worked with Statistics New Zealand to create an online survey that can best capture information of our Waka Ama membership


The purpose of the Waka Ama Census 2018, is to gather important demographic data about our Waka Ama Membership. This will enable us to have a clearer picture of who our membership are and how we can ensure that we best serve the needs of our Waka Ama community. Moving forward we will also be able to communicate more directly with our community.

It will also enable us to give a very clear picture of our waka ama community to our partners and potential sponsors.

Our goal is for everyone involved in the waka ama community to complete the survey.
