Happy new year!
Now that 2013 has officially begun, we are going to be starting our survey and focus group sessions in each of our partner cities. Over the next two weekends, we hope to conduct survey and focus group sessions in various locations around Vancouver:
Saturday, January 5 (1pm – 3pm)
Blenz Coffee Shop, Commercial Drive (Commercial Drive Sky Train Station)
Sunday, January 6 (11am to 1pm)
Metrotown Centre Food Court (Metrotown Sky Train Station)
Sunday, January 6 (2pm to 4pm)
Waves Coffee Shop (New Westminster Sky Train Station)
Saturday, January 12 (Room and time to be announced)
Vancouver Public Library, Downtown Branch (West Georgia Street)
These research sessions will consist of a survey, which will take about 45 minutes to complete, and a 1 hour discussion group. The discussion group will address former live-in caregivers’ transition experiences to Canada, touching on integration into Canada, health, education, etc. All responses will be confidential.
Those who complete the survey get $10, and those who participate in the focus groups get $20. Some food will be provided! Those who hold the open work permit, who have Canadian permanent residence, or Canadian citizenship are eligible to participate.
