Introduction and Consent

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in this survey.

Bruce and Grey Community Safety and Well-Being Survey:
This survey is being hosted by the Grey Bruce Health Unit on behalf of the Municipalities of Bruce and Grey Counties as part of the development of a collaborative Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The survey, which is meant to be completed by residents of Bruce County or Grey County, will help us understand the current state of well-being and feelings of safety of the residents of Bruce and Grey so we can work together to focus on local actions to improve the quality of life for everyone. 

It will take about 15 minutes to complete the survey. We will ask you questions about your day-to-day life, health, education, employment, and safety experiences. By sharing your experiences and what matters to you, you can help to shape life in Bruce and Grey, determine community priorities, and indicate where you think change is needed. 

Your participation in this survey is voluntary and you can refuse to participate or withdraw from the survey at any time simply by stopping the survey. Once you have submitted the survey, you will not be able to withdraw your responses, since they are not linked to individual respondents. Your decision to participate or not will not have an impact on any services you are currently receiving from county social services, a community organization, or a health service, and we do not ask for your name at any time.

Your responses will be kept confidential by grouping responses together and by removing any identifying information. Survey responses will be stored on secure severs at Grey County and the Grey Bruce Health Unit, and only the project coordinator and Grey County and Grey Bruce Health Unit staff who are supporting the project will have access to your individual, anonymous responses. The results will be summarized in a report and shared with local stakeholders and partners. A cleaned and de-identified version of the data set will also be posted on a publicly accessible data sharing website. This data set will not include your open-ended responses or any information that could identify you, certain groups (e.g. certain ethnic groups) or organizations. Open-ended responses (e.g. comments) will not be shared publicly. For more information about this local data sharing initiative, please visit the website https://bgdisc.ca/. 

If you have any questions about this survey or if you would like to request a paper copy, please contact the project coordinator, Sarah Cowley, through the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan Bruce Grey website, cswbp-brucegrey.ca
