Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

The Ontario Veterinary College is studying producer stress and resilience.

Researchers are asking producers to complete a short online survey to help them understand the impacts of their work on their health.

The goal of this anonymous survey is to investigate the relationships between stress and resilience, and to gather important information about the mental wellness of agricultural producers in Ontario.

Researchers anticipate the knowledge gained from this research project to be of great value to the agricultural industry in supporting producers and contributing to their overall well-being and health.

Survey responses will be completely anonymous and confidential. The survey will take about 15 minutes. Access the survey at www.producerwellness.ca

Participants completing the survey can choose to have their name entered in 3 draws to win $200.
