No, this year we will be providing institutions with a standardized survey tool.

Institutions should start their ethics review process as soon as possible to ensure the survey can be launched at the beginning of October 2023.

The survey is meant for international students studying for their full degree/diploma program in Canada. International students include all students who are studying in Canada with a student study permit, visitor’s visa or undertaking research on a work permit. International exchange students are not meant to be included in this sample.

CBIE can work with specific institutions to include identifying student information, however, this requires additional ethics approval by the respective institution. Contact CBIE to discuss.
