Year 1 (2023)

This study launched in April 2023, which was Year 1.

In this first year of the study, we:

  • Recruited 5,000, 17 and 18 year old Canadians, who left a Canadian high school in 2023;
  • Invited eligible participants to complete the registration form; and
  • Ran the Year 1 survey.

As you can see in the infographic below, participants from all over the country completed the survey - which is fantastic!

Year 2 (2024)

In the second year of the study, we will be emailing all qualifying participants (who completed a survey last year), to complete the Year 2 survey.

If you do not receive emails from us between May and August 2024, this means we no longer have your up-to-date contact information.

Click here to update your contact information and we will forward you a link to the Year 2 survey.

NOTE: to ensure that you are who you say you are, we will need to know some information about you, including your name, your date of birth and the email you used last year to complete the Year 1 survey. This information will not be used for any purpose other than to verify that you are a legitimate survey participant.

Years 3, 4 and 5

In each of the subsequent study years (Years 3, 4 and 5), participants who registered in Year 1 (2023) will be invited to complete a survey. We will provide annual updates on this page: we'll present some of the survey findings (in aggregate) so that you can see the results of your participation.

Don't worry! We will never present your feedback in a way that could identify you. We group everyone's feedback together, and make sure it is completely anonymous (de-identified), before we report it. Our Privacy page provides more detailed information about our Privacy and Confidentiality policies.
