Long-Term Care Workers’ Survey

Link to our survey here

We are pleased to invite your participation in the Long-Term Care Workers’ Survey, conducted by researchers from York University, Carleton University and the University of British Columbia.

Key Canadian unions from across Canada are our partners: the Canadian Federation of Nurses’ Unions, including the Nova Scotia Nurses Union, the Ontario Nurses Association, the Manitoba Nurses Union and United Nurses of Alberta; the Canadian Union of Public Employees, including the Hospital Employees’ Union, and UNIFOR.

Your participation in the survey will provide important information about your long-term care work and any challenges you face. The first Long-term Care Workers’ Survey was first conducted with union partners a decade ago. This groundbreaking study investigated work in Canadian LTC facilities and compared conditions with those in Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland). Our findings brought important attention to workplace issues such as violence against workers and under-staffing. We are now conducting this Long-term Care Workers’ Survey in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia to understand ongoing changes as well as areas that require more attention.

Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and your responses will be kept completely confidential. Only the researchers will review your responses. We will not identify you in any way. This research has been approved by the Human Participants Review Sub-Committee of York University, Carleton University and the University of British Columbia’s Ethics Review Boards and conforms to the standards of the Canadian Tri-Council Research Ethics guidelines. The study has been funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. This survey includes questions about your work and its conditions, and some demographic questions. It will take about 30 minutes to finish. The information will inform research, policy and practice changes to Canadian LTC facilities. We will report overall findings back to your union.

If you have questions about this research or how to participate, please contact Dr. Tamara Daly: Telephone 416-736-2100 x 30522; E-mail (ltcstudy@yorku.ca). Thank you for your participation, we look forward to receiving your responses.

If you have any questions about this process, or about your rights as a participant in the study, please contact the Sr. Manager & Policy Advisor for the Office of Research Ethics, 5th Floor, Kaneff Tower, York University (telephone 416-736-5914 or e-mail ore@yorku.ca).
