An Inquiry into the State of Labour Relations in Canada in 2020We invite everyone who works in a labour relations role (both union and management) to participate in our survey on the State of Labour Relations in Canada. THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED.

The survey follows research of the same nature that we conducted in 2011 under the leadership of Queen’s IRC Director, Paul Juniper. We estimate it will take about 20-25 minutes of your time.

The survey has two parts. The first section asks demographic questions aimed to better understand the varied roles and responsibilities of Canada’s labour relations practitioners. The second section seeks perspectives on the labour relations profession, and asks about the challenges that you are facing in labour relations in 2020.

For your participation, you’ll have a chance to win a $50 coffee card (ie: Tim Hortons or Starbucks). There will be an opportunity to enter the draw at the end of the survey, and there will be one $50 gift card for every 100 respondents.

We invite you to share your insights on labour relations in Canada before the survey closes on October 15, 2020. Please pass this invitation along to any of your labour relations colleagues in the field who could also share their insights.
