Help Us Understand the Local Employment Experience

Written by admin, November 7, 2016

November 7, 2016 –¬†Residents Encouraged to Participate in Important Telephone Survey November 7-December 18

Leger, a national research firm, will be conducting a survey on behalf of Peterborough Public Health between November 7 and December 18, 2016. A random selection of residents between 18 and 70 years of age will be asked about their employment experiences. Leger interviewers will call individuals in the County of Peterborough, City of Peterborough and Hiawatha and Curve Lake First Nations to conduct this telephone interview.

Peterborough Public Health, along with its community partners, is interested in collecting information that will provide a local picture of the working and employment conditions faced by workers.  The information will be used for future decision-making towards program planning, education and policy work. The survey is confidential and the individual responses, which will be grouped for analysis, will be protected under privacy laws. While participation in the survey is voluntary, it is important that all selected households take part to ensure the information accurately reflects the views of the residents in this community.

This research project is supported by many community partners with some financial assistance from the City of Peterborough (Social Services) and the Peterborough and District Labour Council.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this important survey.
