Survey Introduction

The Southern Chiefs’ Organization (SCO) is conducting this survey to identify the needs and priorities for the citizens of SCO member Nations who are residential school Survivors, day school Survivors, and intergenerational Survivors to prioritize the path forward and advocate for accountability and action by governments and institutions. This survey also aims to identify how southern First Nation citizens want to best honour and commemorate the children who did not return home from residential school.
This survey consists of approximately 13 questions and should take 5-10 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until Sunday October 23, 2022.

By completing the survey, you can enter an optional draw to win one of three Every Child Matters Hoodies.
