Alongside this survey, we will be conducting in-person consultations in a number of regions across Canada to provide opportunities for more in-depth conversations and data-collection. If you or an organization in your community are interested in hosting a consultation in your region, please contact our project coordinator, Fae Johnstone, at email@example.com.
A group of LGBTQ2+ youth will be working with us to review results from the survey, in-person consultations and other data collection initiatives.
Results from the survey, in-person consultations and other data collection initiatives will be rolled into a report that will be delivered to the Public Health Agency of Canada to help inform their work moving forward on Gender-Based Violence and help create a for youth by youth product.
Your responses are voluntary and will be confidential. Responses will not be identified by individual. All responses will be compiled together and analyzed as a group.
All respondents will be entered into a draw to win one of six $25 Amazon gift cards. To be entered into the draw, please provide your email address at the end of the survey.
The Department for Women & Gender Equality defines Gender-Based Violence (GBV) as "the use and abuse of power and control over another person, and is perpetrated against someone based on their gender identity, gender expression or perceived gender. Violence against women and girls is one form of gender-based violence. It also has a disproportionate impact on LGBTQ2 (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and two-spirit) and gender non-conforming people".
