As we enter the final phase of our First Nations Labour and Employment Development Survey, we had some prize incentives to give away. For every completed survey we received, we submitted the individual’s RUID # (Random Unique Identifier assigned to each completed survey) for a prize. The prizes were collected by the IGDP team and randomly selected.
We are proud to announce we had a winner in every participating community in Nova Scotia, PEI and NFLD. We had three top prizes of a $500 Visa, an iPad and a Smart TV. Two of the big prizes - $500 Visa and the Smart TV - went to two participants in Miawpukek, NFLD. The iPad went to a lucky participant in Paqtn’kek First Nation.
In addition to these big prizes, we had 13 $100 visa gift cards randomly selected and mailed out via Purolator.
We’d like to take this time to personally thank each and every single one of the 1300+ surveys that were completed by our hard-working fieldworkers. We’d also like to take the time to thank the participants for filling out the survey. We look forward to working with all of you in the Spring when we roll out our health survey. Stay tuned for more information on the Regional Health Survey.
