From time to time, the Waterloo Region Family Network (WRFN) is asked to distribute information on behalf of third parties. WRFN provides general information to self-advocates and families of children with special needs.

WRFN is not responsible for any information or services provided by third parties. You are urged to use independent judgment when considering any resource.




The RESPCCT Study (Research Examining the Stories of Pregnancy and Childbearing in Canada Today) is a Community-Based Participatory Research Project developed with a nationwide team of researchers, healthcare providers, and community members with lived experience of pregnancy in Canada. 

The survey will remain open until December 31, 2021. That means we have just one month left to hear from people across Canada who have been pregnant in Canada in the last ten years, and those who are currently pregnant. The survey includes pathways for childbirth and postpartum care as well as miscarriage, termination, and stillbirth, and questions for those who have been pregnant during the pandemic.

Community consultation and co-creation has been at the heart of every step of the survey development. The stories and information shared will be analyzed by sub-teams including experts, stakeholders, and those with lived experience. We have robust data-sharing agreements to ensure the raw data is accessible to communities or organizations who wish to contribute to knowledge translation efforts. Please get in touch with us for more information about opportunities for collaboration.

We've had participation from folks in every province and territory but still need more help to get the word out!

Participation is voluntary and anonymous and the survey takes as little as 20 minutes to complete. 

It is now available in 8 languages:

English - www.respcct.ca
Français du Canada - French - www.respcct.ca/fr/
