    Why was I chosen for the study?

    You were selected at random, just like several thousand people in Québec, to participate in the Québec Study on Experiences in Interpersonal Relationships.

    We obtained the personal information needed for the study, including your contact information, from the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ), under an agreement approved by the Commission d’accès à l’information in accordance with the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information.

    Do I have to take part in this study?

    Your participation in the study is voluntary, but important, because it will help provide a picture of experiences in interpersonal relationships. The information you provide will be used to improve the health and social services offered by government and community organizations in your region.

    What is Statistique Québec’s privacy policy?

    The Act respecting the Institut de la statistique du Québec guarantees that the information you provide will be kept confidential and will only be used for statistical purposes. All Statistique Québec employees have taken an oath before a commissioner and are bound to maintain the secrecy and confidentiality of the data they collect.

    Will you share my answers with other individuals or organizations?

    Statistique Québec has signed an agreement with the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS), to whom the information collected will be sent, with the exception of your name, address, and telephone number.

    Does Statistique Québec have an ethical framework?

    Yes. The study was reviewed by the ethics committee appointed by Statistique Québec. This committee is responsible for safeguarding the respect, dignity and integrity of those participating or included in the study.

    Can I answer the questionnaire for my spouse?

    The questionnaire is personal and can only be answered by the person who was selected for the study.

    How can I make sure you are from Statistique Québec?
