Participate in the new Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey

If you are a manager of staff whose work is not computer-based, please print this email and display it in a common work area for them to review.

You are invited to participate in the new Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS) for employees. The CCWS is a comprehensive, voluntary and confidential survey that assesses the health and wellbeing status of staff and faculty in the post-secondary sector.

The survey takes under 15 minutes to complete and responses will be anonymous and confidential. Results of the survey will be reported in statistically aggregated form only, and it is not possible for UBC or CCWS to identify individual employees. The deadline is May 31, 2021.

You can access the survey at:

Please note: student employees are asked not to take this survey as they received the separate CCWS for students survey in March.

Why should faculty and staff participate?

Your wellbeing impacts your experience as a UBC employee and it is a significant priority for UBC. This survey is one way in which the university can monitor progress in implementing our goals related to promoting health and wellbeing.

Your participation will also provide important feedback that will help shape the programs, services and initiatives that support you at UBC and beyond. It will also allow us to compare UBC employee experiences with those at similar universities across Canada.

Your data will be collected anonymously and combined with anonymous results from other Canadian institutions and stored in a data registry. Since data collected are anonymous, your data cannot be withdrawn. The data registry is solely under the custodianship of the Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (Principal Investigator: Dr. Guy Faulkner, 604-822-2990) and may only be accessed through case-level datasets prepared by Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey analysts for approved researchers and third-parties for research purposes (H19-02720). Data stored as part of the research registry will be encrypted and password-protected and stored on a computer in a secure UBC location.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact the local principal investigator Dr. Stephanie McKeown, Chief Institutional Research Officer at More information about the CCWS is available at

Thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable feedback.
