Survey Time – Please take the survey, as it is incredibly important to helping advocate for postdocs across all of Canada!
2016 Survey Invitation:
The Canadian Association of Postdoctoral Scholars (CAPS-ACSP), with support from the Tri-councils (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC), is conducting a national survey of Canadian postdoctoral scholars. If you are a postdoctoral scholar who is associated with a Canadian institution, receiving funding from within Canada, a Canadian working aboard or a former postdoctoral scholar that then you are a member of CAPS-ACSP and your views are incredibly important to us.
The survey requires about 20 minutes of your time, and will explore your experiences and perceptions of your postdoctoral training. We hope that you will take the time to complete the survey. It truly is your opportunity to have your voice heard. The survey will be available until April 29th. Responses from the survey will be kept anonymous and confidential.

ENGLISH SURVEY LINK
CAPS-ACSP conducted its second national survey in 2013. The results of that survey provided, at the time, a comprehensive picture of Canadian postdoctoral scholars: their experiences, their aspirations, and who they were. The final report discussing the survey can be found here, https://www.mitacs.ca/sites/default/files/caps-mitacs_postdoc_report-full_oct22013-final.pdf).The results have guided our efforts to advocate on behalf of Canadian postdoctoral scholars over the past three years. However, the past three years have also seen a number of significant changes for postdoctoral scholars in Canada and so it is time again for us to ask you about your experiences. We will be using the information we gain from this survey to guide us as we work hard to improve the Canadian postdoctoral experience.
To reach a wide audience, the survey is being distributed in a number of different ways. Our sincere apologies if you have already received an invitation to participate in this study. Please only complete the survey once.
If you experience any technical issues, or have any questions about the survey please contact email@example.com.
