In 2009, the Reseau Santé-Nouvelle-Ecosse (RSNE) conducted community consultations with several Francophone and Acadian communities in the province and identified their needs and priorities for health and wellness at the time.

Today, the Réseau Santé is continuing this effort to understand your experiences with health services in French. In particular, we would like to know your experiences with receiving an active offer of health services in French and also your requests for them. The analysis of responses to this Health Network survey will allow the Réseau Santé to work with partners such as the Nova Scotia Health Authority, the IWK Health Center and the Department of Health and Wellness to improve health services in French.

To that end, we appreciate your contribution by answering the following questions. It will take you about 10 minutes to complete.
