Almonte Community Coordinators  (also known as the Hub) is working with Carleton University to conduct a survey of local needs and experiences related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey is short and anonymous. Results will be shared with the public once anything that could identify individuals has been removed, and will be used by community groups to help them know how to help.

Anyone over the age of 13 living in or around Mississippi Mills is welcome to complete this survey. We would like to hear from as many residents as possible so we know how you’re doing and where to focus our efforts to support the community.

There are no personal risks or benefits to you for completing this survey. You can skip any questions, and quit the survey at any time, for any reason – but you cannot withdraw once your survey has been submitted (we will have no way to know which one is yours). The data will be password-protected and stored securely on Carleton University’s servers. We will not collect any identifying information (such as IP addresses) so there is little risk to your privacy.

If you’d like to talk to someone about what you’re going through, you can find support by calling 2-1-1 or Lanark County Mental Health 613-283-2170.

This survey is funded by a COVID-19 Rapid Response Research Grant from Carleton University and has been cleared by their research ethics review committee (CUREB, Clearance# 113116). Anyone with concerns or questions can reach them at ethics@carleton.ca.

You are also welcome to contact the project supervisor, Sophie Tamas, by email at sophie.tamas@carleton.ca or by phone at 613 853 8452.

By clicking ’submit’, you are saying that you understand the purpose of this survey and consent to participate.
