ByWard Market Public Life Study: Call for Volunteers
The task: Conduct observational counts of how people are using ByWard Market's public spaces.

The time: A four hour shift, between 8:30am to 10:30pm on Thursday September 20 and/or Saturday September 22, 2018. All volunteers must arrive 30 minutes before the start of their shift to undergo training.

The place: ByWard Market, Ottawa


The ByWard Market is one of the most well known destinations in Ottawa. Because of its economic and cultural contributions, the City of Ottawa plans to ensure that the Market remains a popular and successful destination in the future. The ByWard Market Public Realm Plan will establish a vision for improvements to the network of public spaces in the ByWard Market, including streets, sidewalks, parks, squares and plazas.

We’re looking for friendly volunteers to help collect “people data” to better understand how residents and visitors get around and spend time in the ByWard Market. Half of the shift will involve making observational notes about activities in the market while the other half requires volunteers to ask passersby to fill out a short survey. Overall, the study will reveal what people like and dislike about the area, how they use it, and why.

Each volunteer shift is four hours, plus a 30-minute training prior to the beginning of the shift. Light refreshments provided.

This is the first of three public life studies. We'll be looking for more volunteers for the second and third rounds the study, which will take place in January and July 2019, respectively.
