Société Économique de l’Ontario (SEO) has partnered with Northern Policy Institute (NPI) for a survey on youth out migration. 

The survey is asking young people, between the ages of 16 and 30, if they want to stay in the north. 

They’re also gauging their interest in becoming an entrepreneur in their communities. 

“The results from this survey will help inform and improve current efforts geared toward combatting youth out migration in Northern communities and to understand how youth can contribute to the development of their community,” states a release.   “The retention of youth in northern communities is an important component of population growth and welcoming community efforts.”

The online survey will be available until October 7th, 2021.

Young adults (ages 16-30) in Northern Ontario can take the 7-10 minute survey using one of the links below:
