Calgary Well-being Research – Recruitment

Vibrant Communities Calgary and the Canadian Poverty Institute are working on a research project about the overall well being of Calgarians.

Throughout 2022, Statistics Canada will be releasing reports with the results of the 2021 Census Survey. We are collaborating with a number of public interest groups, health agencies and non-profits in Calgary to produce a report on community well being to fill in the gaps on poverty and standard of living data in Calgary.

We’re looking to interview people who self-identify as having lived experiences of poverty, as well as a handful of frontline providers or community organizers. The interview will take about 30-minutes to complete, and it can be in-person or over Zoom. Participants will be compensated with a $40 gift card.

Please email laura.nauta@ambrose.edu by August 10 if you are interested.
