Survey Studies Canadian Fathers' Use of Parental Leave

By Kenny Bodanis @KennyBodanis

I was recently contacted by a Master of Public Policy student at Simon Fraser University who, as part of a thesis is studying Canadian fathers' use of parental leave.
The student included a survey to be completed by fathers with at least one child born or adopted since 2010, and who lived and worked in Canada at the time. The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete.

From the survey's author:

The purpose of this survey is to explore fathers’ use of parental leave in Canada since 2010. In particular, this survey focuses on the extent to which employment and organisational factors impact fathers’ decisions to take parental leave.

By examining work--‐related barriers and facilitators, this study seeks to identify ways to better support fathers who want to take parental leave. All recent fathers aged 19 and over are encouraged to participate in the survey regardless of whether or not they have taken parental leave in the past.

Here is a link to the survey: Survey for Fathers

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the student directly:
