Dear All:

The Systemic Issues and Social Change working group (SISC WG) facilitated by the Toronto South Local Immigration Partnership (TSLIP) is currently working on policy issues related to access to technology. For this purpose, we developed a brief survey for Service Providers to obtain a better understanding of your experience and your perspectives on the strengths and challenges of offering online and remote services during COVID-19.   

As we start to transition to a blended model of online and in-person services, we feel it is crucial to capture the evolving needs of newcomer communities so that we can address technology accessibility needs and gaps in the next year. To this end, we ask that you take the time to complete this survey and that you share your insights with us. The survey will take about 8 to 10 minutes to complete.

Your feedback will be used to inform the SISC WG work as well as our participation in the various community response efforts currently underway, including the work of the United Way/City of Toronto Neighbourhood Clusters, The Community Response table at the City of Toronto and the National Settlement and Integration Council.

If you have any questions about this survey, you can contact Adriana Pena, Communications Coordinator - TSLIP at communications@torontolip.com.

Thank you for your participation.
