Engagement initiative objectives

Statistics Canada is currently in the process of developing a national survey initiative on sexual and reproductive health.

We have engaged with Canadians from diverse perspectives to better understand what is important to them when it comes to sexual and reproductive health and help the Agency develop a respectful approach when designing any survey initiative. The surveys will include topics such as access to resources, services, supports and challenges faced in relation to sexual and reproductive health. Some populations such as women, youth, LGBTQ2 people, racialized Canadians and Indigenous peoples may face different challenges and barriers to accessing sexual and reproductive health support, information and services. In order to ensure the relevancy of the initiative, it is essential to identify information priorities for different populations in order to provide data to support policies and programs which best meet the needs of all Canadians.
