You Are Invited to Participate in a Survey on CISV!


CISV Canada is a highly regarded organization with a goal of enhancing global awareness and sense of global citizenship. Unfortunately, the organization and the CISV experience are not all that well known at present, despite its already formidable contributions to the country and the world. This study is designed to address this situation.

Your feedback is an important factor as we analyze the personal and collective impact of CISV Canada and assess the medium and long-term effectiveness of CISV programs. The survey should take you about 15 minutes to complete.
