Take time for the ‘REEES’

Did you know there’s still time to take part in the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey (aka the REEES), a landmark survey about First Nations people in Canada?

This one-of-a-kind survey will provide us with an unprecedented perspective of life in First Nations communities; one that encompasses early childhood development, education, and employment. But it can only happen if you take the time and take part. 

The REEES is currently in the final stretch of data collection in 10 provinces and two territories across Canada. When all is said and done nearly 30,000 people in 250 First Nations communities will have taken part in the survey.

If you are chosen to take part in the REEES your answers will help us build a better and richer understanding of life in First Nations communities across Canada -- one that will help inform programming and policy on a national, regional and community level. 

The REEES is a joint effort of the First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC), a First Nations-run non-profit organization, and its Regional Partners. FNIGC has received a mandate to conduct the REEES from the AFN’s Chiefs in Assembly (per Resolution 19-2011) during their Annual General Meeting in Moncton, New Brunswick in June 2011. 

Make sure your voice is heard!
