NEW opportunity: OSSTF research on equity and member engagement

Dear member,

OSSTF/FEESO provincial office is conducting a research project on issues around member engagement among members who self-identify as either racialized or Indigenous.

The research is being conducted in cooperation with Environics Research, a public opinion research firm. Environics will be conducting a series of moderated focus group sessions in several locations across Ontario. There will be one session conducted via a telephone conference call on the evening of Tuesday, September 17 (6:30pm-8:30pm). Members who are selected to be a part of this focus group session will be a provided by Environics a toll free number to call in for the telephone conference session.

If you are an OSSTF member who identifies as either racialized or Indigenous (i.e. First Nations, Metis, Inuit) and you would like to take part in the session as a paid participant, please send an e-mail to Jenny Chen, OSSTF/FEESO Equity Officer ( Members who wish to be selected for the focus group should include the following in their email:

  • your name

  • your home address

  • personal e-mail address

  • best phone number to reach you

  • how you self-identify.

You will then be contacted by Environics and/or their focus group recruitment partner CRC research to see if you qualify and to give you details on where the focus group will take place. Deadline to submit an email to indicate interest is 4:00pm on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.

NB: This telephone conference session will be conducted with a maximum of 10 participants, so not everyone who expresses an interest in participating will necessarily be contacted.

Inquiries regarding this research project can be directed to Jenny Chen at the OSSTF/FEESO provincial office (
