Fun and factual story on how Our Kids Network collects and uses data
from surveys. Rudy, the turnip explains why it's so important for community

The Child & Youth Wellbeing Survey is a youth-friendly, validated tool developed by UNICEF Canada. Halton was one of the communities in Canada invited to participate along with Waterloo Region, Ottawa, and Digby, Nova Scotia. UNICEF and the Canadian Index of Wellbeing supported the implementation of the survey. Our Kids Network (OKN) led the implementation in Halton and will receive the raw data and reports. OKN will also participate in the development of a toolkit to support the administration of the survey across Canada, and the use of its data.The survey was administered from late April to June 14, 2021, with the results being available by late 2021.
