Introduction (INT)

Introduction (INT) - Question identifier:INT_R01

We invite you to participate in the 2018 Survey on Sexual Misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), conducted by Statistics Canada on behalf of the CAF. This survey is an initiative of Operation HONOUR.

Your participation is very important whether or not you have experienced inappropriate sexual behaviour in the workplace, we need to hear from you. The results of this survey will be compared with the baseline results obtained in the first survey conducted in 2016, to monitor progress and measure mission accomplishments. The results will also influence strategic policy and training development. By taking this opportunity to express your views and share your experiences, you will be helping to build a stronger and more inclusive CAF for everyone.

This voluntary survey is conducted under the authority of the Statistics Act, which ensures that the information you provide will be kept confidential.

In addition, Statistics Canada will safeguard your identity by grouping your responses with those of other respondents when reporting results. Individual responses and results for very small groups will never be published or shared with the CAF.

Please complete this online questionnaire in a location where you have privacy. The survey takes approximately 25 minutes to complete. You may save your answers and return to the survey at any point in time. Please note that you have until November 15, 2018 to submit your completed questionnaire.

We appreciate you taking the time to participate in, and contribute to the success of, this important survey.
