https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=dafBGf_2b8WQBgomF0iyOnAA_3d_3d

The growth of the Internet and its increasing role in our daily work and lives is generating a broad range of issues that may warrant more public discussion among users, developers, industry and government.

The Canadian Internet Registry Authority (CIRA) is undertaking a survey to explore whether there is interest in increasing the dialogue around the evolution and use of the Internet in Canada. This survey is being managed in conjunction with the International Institute for Sustainable Development.  The purpose is to assess the value in establishing a new forum through which Canadians can explore these issues.

A new survey on Canadian Public Interest in Internet Policy and Decision Making: We would like to hear from you! The growth of the Internet and its increasing role in our daily work and lives is generating a broad range of issues. These issues may warrant more public discussion among users, developers, industry and government.

We would like your input on the following:

  • Your priorities and concerns around the evolution of the Internet in Canada;
  • Your views about the type of process that might best serve Canadians to advance public debate on these concerns;
  • How this process might best be linked to regional and international stakeholders involved in shaping the future of the global Internet.
