A survey was developed to access the information desired. A strategic sampling method was chosen as likely to generate
the most effective response. Surveys were also distributed through selected multicultural and aboriginal organizations.
Finally, surveys were available at locations in town, including the public libraries, and the Lakehead Social Planning
Council in Victoriaville Mall.
1020 surveys were distributed. 392 surveys were returned. this is a 38% response rate, very good for community-based
research of this type.
