Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome to participate and all your responses will be anonymous. Participation involves reading a news article and completing several questionnaires. This should take no more than 10-15 minute of your time.

On this page, you will also find more information about our study. If you do not wish to continue with your participation, you can close the web browser at any time. If you choose to participate, please make sure you proceed to the very last page of the survey to submit your responses!

At the end of the survey, you also have the option to enter the draw to win one of five $50 Flexi eGift cards!
