By analyzing social ties, social habits, perceptions and places of interaction, this research aims to better understand social capital in neighborhoods.
Our social connections play a leading role in several areas of our lives, such as the health and well-being of individuals, mutual support in neighborhoods and the capacity for innovation. Among all the benefits associated with social ties, this study focuses on individual and collective resilience in the face of urban stress and crises.
This research will produce a portrait of social ties in neighborhoods after the COVID-19 pandemic.
This data will enable us to better target the activities of organizations and anticipate the role of social ties in the face of future crises.
We invite you to answer a few questions about your social ties, your neighborhood and the places you frequent.
A draw for 15 gift cards worth $100 in groceries will be held among all respondents.
All residents aged 16 and over in these six Montreal territories: the boroughs of LaSalle, Montreal-North, Pierrefonds-Roxboro, St-Léonard, as well as the neighborhood of Côte-des-Neiges and the neighborhood of Centre-Sud in the Ville-Marie borough.
Fill in the online questionnaire. It will take about 10 to 15 minutes.
To track the evolution of social connections, participants will be asked to complete the survey once a year until 2025.
This project mobilizes municipal authorities as well as organizations from the health, community and philanthropic sectors to foster the collective resilience of neighborhoods and improve social ties.
Each year, a co-construction workshop for knowledge sharing and reflection will be held with interested organizations. The aim of this workshop is to discuss the results of the survey, identify the main issues and ways of fostering social ties. An analysis report will also be published each year.
