Youthful Cities, in partnership with Tamarack Institute, seeks to investigate how the youth workforce and work ecosystems in Canada have changed after the COVID-19 pandemic.

How to participate

We are asking you to participate in our online ‘What’s Up with Work Lately?’ survey. This survey aims to better understand how young people view their work-life dynamics, their employability, the resources provided by their cities, and the skills needed to succeed in the current and future job markets. Your answers will help inform research around public policies for youth work and living practices in your Canadian city.

The research is anonymous

No one will be able to link your answers to you. The online survey is hosted by Typeform, a common data collection platform. The data collected through Typeform is protected by leading Canadian and international cybersecurity and data protection standards.

Your participation is voluntary

Your participation is entirely voluntary. You can choose to quit the survey at any time. Remember your contribution is entirely anonymous and cannot be linked back to you. Your contribution is only recorded if you press the Submit button at the very end of the survey.

After the study is completed

After your answers are submitted, they will be removed from Typeform, grouped, and stored as open access data by Youthful Cities and Tamarack Institute for future research and use. Findings drawn from this survey will be published in public reports, academic papers, and presentations to a wide audience, including local organizations, academic institutions, city officials, governmental entities, and the general public. They will also be shared on other relevant public websites.
