Guest Post - Survey Volunteers Wanted

Hello Woodparkers,

My name is Hannah, and I am a Master’s student at Carleton University studying building engineering. I am part of a team led by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) with some team members from the University of Toronto and Carleton University. We are doing a survey of people aged 60+ living in their own homes (or people who have moved into supportive housing in the past two years).

We are doing this survey to better understand housing and well-being of people aging in place in Canada. Specifically, we want to understand the physical environmental conditions in homes and the comfort, well-being, and health of the people aging in place in those homes. This survey will help us identify what parts of homes best support people, and what parts might benefit from more research to improve indoor environmental conditions so that people can stay in their homes longer.

We will use the survey information to design other parts of our multi-year research project. The results of the whole project over the next few years will contribute to guidance on how to live better as we age in place in our homes.

You are eligible to participate if:

  • You are at least 60 years old in 2023.

  • Your principal residence is in Canada.

  • You live in independent housing (either alone or with others) OR moved out of independent housing into supportive housing within the past two years.

  • No one else in your household has already participated in this survey.

We are currently looking for more participants from Ottawa, so we would be grateful if you would consider doing the survey if you are eligible and interested. There is more information in the attached survey announcement and in the link provided in that announcement (

The survey takes about 50 minutes to complete. The survey does not currently have a closing date, but it will be open until at least the end of June 2024. If you complete the survey, you will have the option to receive a short report on the survey results at a later date.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration,

Hannah Villeneuve
