Study of women in government

The P.E.I. Coalition for Women in Government has initiated a study of women who have made a commitment to political life, and has hired The Quaich Inc. to assist with the survey portion of the project.

''The coalition is putting together an online survey with questions about how politicians spend their days, which it hopes all 27 members of the P.E.I. legislature will fill out. It will also seek out a sampling of provincial politicians from other parts of Canada to determine if political life on the Island is similar to the rest of the country. It will follow up the online survey with focus groups and interviews.'' (CBC)

The Quaich Inc. has been contracted by the PEI Coalition for Women in Government to assist in survey development for this project, manage the survey, and evaluate the results.
