If you are a parent or guardian with at least one child under the age of 18 in the home, we’d like to get your views. Your responses will help us understand the needs of parents and the ways local churches and ministry organizations can support you as you pass your faith onto your children. 

This survey will take about 15 minutes of your time. You will be asked basic demographic questions about your family and your family’s relationship with your local church (if you have one). You will also be asked about how you understand faith formation, how you form the faith of your children, and the supports and resources available to you as a parent.

Any identifying information about you that is obtained in connection with this survey will remain confidential and will be disclosed only with your permission or as required by law. All data will be kept on a secure server. You are free to stop the survey at any time without penalty. Data from incomplete surveys will not be included in the dataset. By participating in this study, you do not waive any legal rights.

At the end of the survey, we will give you an opportunity to enter a draw for one of three $250 Amazon gift cards.  You’ll also have an opportunity to request a copy of the final public report that will be published at www.theEFC.ca within 6 months of the close of this survey.

If you change your mind and would like to withdraw your responses after completing the survey, please contact us at research@theEFC.ca before June 7, 2022. We will remove your responses if we are able to identify you through the contact information you have provided.
