KidsInclusive is very supportive of research for the wellbeing of children. From time to time we receive requests from research teams throughout the province and the country asking for assistance in recruiting participants. If possible we assist by contacting the appropriate families on their behalf to inform them of the opportunity. We may also post studies on this page for you to view at your leisure. All research studies posted here will have contact information that you can access should you have inquires or wish to participate. Please know that your decision to participate in any research will in no way affect your child’s services at KidsInclusive.
Families and clients who do not wish to be contacted for research purposes please let us know by sending us an email from the Contact Us section of the website or call 613 544 3400 ext. 3175.
