PLIAN is a partner organization with Memorial University’s Department of Geography on a research study called “COVID-19 and the housing experiences of newcomers and temporary residents living in Newfoundland and Labrador” along with the Association for New Canadians (ANC), Municipalities of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Happy Valley-Goose Bay Housing and Homelessness Coalition. The following message from the Department of Geography is to seek participants in a survey associated with the research study. Please note that participation in this study is not a requirement for access to any programs and services offered by PLIAN or any other partner organization.
The purpose of this study is to compare the housing experiences of immigrants, refugees, and temporary residents (including international students, migrant workers, and visitors), and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on these experiences in NL. We also want to consider how the barriers and needs of these populations can be addressed.
The survey is anonymous and voluntary. It is available in English, Arabic, Tagalog, and Tigrinya. It should take no more than 25 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you will have an opportunity to enter a draw to win one of 25 visa gift cards of $50.
