Careers in Aviation Survey

Good afternoon,

Per the message below, Brigadier-General Cochrane, the Commander of the National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group has asked that we encourage maximum participation in the survey outlined below. This is a great opportunity to have a voice in how aviation careers are presented in Canada and I encourage each of you to participate before 24 Mar.

Parents and Guardians of Cadets,

In an effort to identify perceived barriers to those entering the aviation industry, Elevate Aviation – a non-profit organization in Canada, is conducting a national research project that aims to collect information from a variety of demographics across the country, including members of the Air Cadet Program. The Air Cadet survey intends to provide a picture of how familiar youth in the Cadet Program are with careers in the aviation industry and how they perceive those careers. The results of this survey will help develop an action plan to address the gender imbalance in aviation and to increase economic security for women.

The National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group supports this survey. Participation is voluntary and anonymous; however, in order to obtain views of Air Cadets nationwide, the participation of your children is paramount!

We are seeking consent for your cadets to participate in our online survey, administered by Zag Creative for Elevate Aviation. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. We ask that your cadet visit between 4 and 24 Mar 2019 to complete this survey.

The information provided will be used solely for the purposes of the survey and will not be communicated to third parties. Only grouped results will be reported. Should you have questions, please contact us through our email (English) or (Fran├žais). This survey has been approved by the DND/CAF Social Science Research Review Board (SSRRB) under SSRRB approval number 1793/18F.

I thank you in advance for your participation in this research and for your continued support of the Cadet Program.
