The Institut de la statistique du Québec (Statistique Québec) is a government agency whose mission is to provide reliable, objective statistics on all aspects of Québec society for which such information is pertinent. These statistics enhance knowledge, enlighten debates and support decision making by various Québec stakeholders.
The Statistique Québec panel is made up of volunteers who agreed to be contacted by Statistique Québec to participate in future surveys. When a new Statistique Québec panel survey is conducted, we will contact you by text message, email or mail to invite you to participate. You will be solicited a maximum of three times a year.
Statistique Québec may ask you to participate in surveys aimed at meeting the statistical needs of Québec government departments and agencies. The surveys may cover any topic related to the situation in Québec (e.g. health, education, the economy, etc.).
To participate, you must wait for Statistique Québec to contact you about a survey that will use the panel.
Your participation in each survey is voluntary, but important in order to produce reliable, representative statistics on Québec.
Each time you participate, a draw will be held at the end of the survey. The winner will be contacted by telephone.
If you want to have your name removed from the panel, you must get in touch with Statistique Québec using the contact information provided on the reverse side of this letter. When you contact us, please give us your name and file number. Once your name has been removed from the panel, Statistique Québec will not, under any circumstances, contact you regarding future panel surveys. However, you may be selected at random to respond to another one of Statistique Québec’s surveys, as you were for the Québec Population Health Survey 2020-2021.
You can take part in our surveys with the knowledge that the information you provide will remain confidential and will only be used for statistical purposes. This is guaranteed under the Act respecting the Institut de la statistique du Québec.
The surveys carried out by Statistique Québec are reviewed by an ethics committee. This committee is responsible for safeguarding the respect, dignity and integrity of those participating or included in our surveys.
