The Mother Rising Survey

Survey for: mothers, women, and gender-diverse individuals in Canada who take on unpaid caregiving roles for people in their lives (e.g. children, elders). 

Purpose: We want to hear how you have been coping over the last, challenging two years. What do you need to rise? Your voice will help us continue to develop advocacy and policy actions to make things better for mothers and caregivers in Canada.
