From CHEO:

We are conducting an online survey for research being conducted at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and we would greatly appreciate if you can complete the brief survey yourself, as well as to forward this invitation to your contacts as an email, or you can share in your social networks (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) in an attempt to get more people to respond. The survey link and QR code can be found after the project description below.


You are being invited to complete a short survey to provide your opinion on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted your use of cannabis.

This study is being done because Cannabis continues to be legalized in more and more countries and is being used for the medical treatment of multiple diseases and disorders. We are interested in examining how COVID-19 has impacted your personal experience with cannabis, and one of the ways researchers look at this is by asking about things like education and employment, and whether you live in an urban or a rural neighborhood. You do not have to answer any question that you do not feel comfortable answering.

Taking part in this study is voluntary (completely up to you). If you decide to take part, it will take about 15 minutes to complete the study. You are free to withdraw from (leave) the study at any time and there will be no penalty to you. We expect to invite more than 1000 people to take part in the study.

In a multiple choice format you will be asked if COVID-19 has impacted your school or your work or the quality of your sleep. You will also be asked questions on your cannabis use before COVID-19 as well as cannabis use while you are living through COVID-19.

All information we gather will be kept strictly confidential. It will not be shared with anyone outside of our research team. When we publish or present the results of this study, we will not show any information that could identify you. We will keep all survey data in a locked filing cabinet and on a password-protected computer at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). When we are finished the research study, we will keep the data for 7 years after the last publication of this study. Then we will destroy the data.

You may or may not directly benefit from the study. However, your input and perspective would be of tremendous value to us. The risks of participating in this study may be feeling uncomfortable with some of the questions. You can choose not to answer any questions you do not want to answer and you can leave the study at any time without finishing.
