. 6. How long will it take to complete the survey?
The survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. 7. How were the questions developed?

Questions were reviewed and amended through ongoing consultation with stakeholders. 8. Can we skip questions on the survey?
Yes, you may skip any question that you are not comfortable answering, or which does not apply to you.9. Is the survey anonymous? How are you able to maintain confidentiality?
We know that collecting this type of sensitive information can raise concerns about privacy and stigmatization, particularly among those who experience discrimination.
Survey responses are anonymous and confidential. Information collected will be stored in a secure, confidential database and only be accessed by authorized data analysts. We are committed to the highest levels of privacy and confidentiality in collecting information about staff. We follow all privacy requirements outlined in the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).
Reports will never single out or identify an individual. Data will only be reported in summary form to highlight our community’s needs.
The Board will be using Qualtrics, a secure third-party survey platform to collect staff data. 10. What if I don’t have access to technology to complete the survey?
