New parents and child care survey 

Are you a new parent? Expecting your first child soon? Just found out you are pregnant? We want to hear from you!

The Childcare Resource and Research Unit is conducting a survey of parents and parents-to-be across Canada who are (or whose partner is) expecting a baby or on paid or unpaid maternity/parental leave.

We are surveying Canadian parents and parents-to-be (now expecting a baby or are on paid or unpaid maternity/parental leave) about child care arrangements. We expect this research will lead to better understanding about how parents arrange child care. The results of the survey will be publicly available later in 2017 on our website at 

We would very much appreciate help from both individuals and organizations in circulating the survey, either by passing it on yourself to appropriate individuals or groups, through social media, by putting a link to it on your website or in a newsletter, or through other means. 

This survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. Any information provided will be completely anonymous. It will be used only as group (aggregate) information and only for this project.

This survey is being conducted by the Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU) in collaboration with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW).
