Almonte Community Coordinators (also known as The Hub) is conducting a survey of local needs and experiences related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey is short (10 questions). 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. Please consider forwarding this invitation to your local contacts.

You can skip any questions and quit the survey at any time. 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 at 613-283-2170.

To complete this survey online, please go to https://carleton.ca/emogeolab/mississippi-mills-covid-19-community-survey/

 Online surveys are anonymous.

To complete this survey over the phone, please call or text our Research Assistant, Casey Gray, at 778-980-3146. Phone-in surveys are not anonymous but they are confidential (we might know who you are but we will not tell anyone who called or what you said).

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). 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, by phone at 613 853 8452.
