Survey on Housing and Well-being of Older Adults Aging in Place

A university student wrote to us about a study they are conducting and are looking for participants:


I am a master’s student at Carleton University who is on a team from the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), University of Toronto, and Carleton University who are doing a survey of people aged 60+ living in their own homes (or who have moved into supportive housing in the past two years) to better understand housing and well-being of people aging in place in Canada.

Would you consider announcing our survey to the Cardinal Creek Community Association members, perhaps through your website, newsletter, or an e-mail contact list (if you have one)? Currently, we are looking for more participants from Ottawa, so we would especially appreciate any support your association can provide us in sharing the survey.

I would be very happy to discuss this further and provide more details, so please let me know if you are interested in learning more about this or potentially helping us spread the word about the survey. In the meantime, I have included the survey announcement text below this e-mail.

I look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you very much for your time and consideration,

Hannah Villeneuve (she/her), B.Eng.
