This survey was created to evaluate the needs and concerns of sex workers in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec. We are gathering information from people that are either escorts, erotic dancers, porn stars, street-based sex workers, models, massagers and all those in the industry of exchanging sexual services for goods or money.
You currently have two options for filling out the survey.
- You may proceed online and fill out the survey at your discretion or
- You may schedule an appointment to fill out the survey in person at one of our partnered organisations (MAX Ottawa, Aids Committee of Toronto, RÉZO in Montreal or MIELS in Québec) and receive a 20$ honorarium in exchange for your time. To book an appointment in:
- Ottawa we ask that you connect with Josh: josh@maxottawca
- Montréal we ask that you connect with Jonathan: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Toronto we ask that you connect with Mike: email@example.com
- Québec we ask that you connect with Patrick: firstname.lastname@example.org
Only male (cis + trans), and trans feminine sex workers are eligible for the honorarium.
Filling out the survey online/on your personal time will not allow us to give out the $20 honorarium due to confidentiality.
The data collected through this online survey will be compiled and summarized into a report. The report will serve as foundation to the development of an intervention targeting male sex workers in Québec, Montréal, Toronto, and Ottawa. The intervention will hope to increase male sex workers access to combination prevention services (Mental health, sexual health, legal, or other).
Keeping your information confidential is of the utmost importance to us. The information gathered through this survey will be collected and analyzed through a third-party website (Hosted in Canada Surveys). The male sex work strategy support coordinator working in Ottawa will be the employee collecting and analyzing the data. The online data will be kept for 6 months, after which it will be erased. Once the data is deleted online, groups may still access the data findings report.
Data may be shared with other groups, if it can be leveraged to support education, and/or advocacy efforts that would have positive impacts on the lives of male sex workers.
For any other questions pertaining to confidentiality and security we ask that you connect with us directly at: email@example.com
There are 90 questions in this survey.
