New announcement: FOCUS GROUP - Quebec City, Winnipeg, Halifax Groupes de Discussions

FOCUS GROUP - Quebec City, Winnipeg, Halifax
Groupes de Discussions - Quebec City, Winnipeg, Halifax
(le français suit l'anglais)
Dear Stakeholder,
Veterans Affairs Canada is developing new print and online materials to help keep Veterans and their families informed about the Department's new services and benefits. As these products are being developed, VAC would like to ask for your assistance in engaging members of your organization to share their opinions at upcoming focus groups, to be held in Halifax, Winnipeg and Quebec City, beginning in late-February.
These focus groups will include up to 10 participants, mainly Canadian Veterans, but also some family members (spouses, children over 18) and caregivers, if possible. Participation in the focus groups is confidential and no personal details will be retained or shared.
Léger research firm is hosting the focus groups on behalf of VAC. Each session will be up to two hours. The locations being used for the sessions are accessible and free parking is available.
The results of these focus groups will become part of a public opinion research report. Veterans Affairs Canada is required to post the report to the Library and Archives Canada website within six months following the end of the focus group sessions.
I would be most grateful if you would share this opportunity with your membership in these cities.
Interested participants should contact Léger: Sylvie Dupuis, Director Qualitative Research, Email: sdupuis@leger360.com, Telephone:
514-982-2464 (ext. 105) with any queries they may have or to find out more information or express interest in participating.

Madame, Monsieur,
Anciens Combattants Canada travaille à l'élaboration de documents imprimés et en ligne pour tenir les vétérans et leur famille au courant des nouveaux services et avantages offerts par le Ministère. Pendant que l'on procède à la mise au point de ces produits, nous vous demandons votre aide afin que vous mobilisiez les membres de votre organisation pour qu'ils expriment leur opinion lors des prochains groupes de discussions qui auront lieu à Halifax, à Winnipeg et à Québec à compter de la mi-février.
Ces groupes de discussion compteront un maximum de dix participants, principalement des vétérans canadiens, mais également certains proches (conjoints, enfants de plus de 18 ans) et des aidants, dans la mesure du possible. La participation aux groupes de discussion est confidentielle et aucun renseignement personnel ne sera conservé ou partagé.
La firme de recherche Léger tiendra les groupes de discussion au nom d'ACC. Chaque séance durera environ deux heures. Les lieux utilisés pour les séances sont accessibles et il y du stationnement gratuit.
Les résultats de ces groupes de discussions seront intégrés à un rapport de recherche sur l'opinion publique. Anciens Combattants Canada doit afficher le rapport sur le site Web de Bibliothèque et Archives Canada dans les six mois suivant la fin des séances des groupes de discussion.
Je vous saurais gré de communiquer cette occasion à vos membres qui résident dans ces villes.
Les personnes qui aimeraient participer doivent communiquer avec Léger:
Sylvie Dupuis, directrice de la recherche qualitative, par courriel à sdupuis@leger360.com ou par téléphone au 514-982-2464 (poste 105) pour toute question, pour en savoir davantage ou pour manifester leur intérêt.
