From one upheaval to the next :
The impact of social crises on the well-being of Quebec families

The English Parents' Committee Association of Quebec (EPCA) and the Fédération des comités de parents du Québec (FCPQ) join forces to find out how families are doing. In collaboration with Dr. Mélissa Généreux, a public health physician and professor at the Université de Sherbrooke's Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and Dr. Clara Morin, a public health resident, EPCA and the FCPQ are today launching a large-scale Quebec survey aimed at providing a summary portrait of the well-being of children and their parents in the midst of social crises.

Who is this for? All parents of primary and secondary school children.

What: A short, ten-minute questionnaire on the secure Limesurvey © platform, in English or French.

Deadline to submit a response is January 30, 2024. The results of the survey will be widely circulated thereafter.
