Thank you for visiting the online registration site for the online focus groups with 4 to 6 other Indigenous women about physical activity and sport, conducted by EKOS Research Associates on behalf of the Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute (CFLRI). These 60-minute online discussions will explore what conditions motivate some women, and prevent others, from participating in sport or physical activity. Participants will be given $125 for attending the discussion.

Groups will be held between mid-September and mid-October and an observer from CFLRI will also be in attendance, but only first names will be used in order to protect privacy as much as possible. It's important to note that the discussions will be organized among women who share similar levels of interest and pursuit of sport and physical activity. So, if you participate, you will be grouped with 4 or 6 other women with a similar level of interest and involvement in physical activity or sport.

Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirmation right away. We will select up to 6 Indigenous women to participate in each session, among those who register. If you are selected, you will receive a telephone confirmation within a few days. You will also receive an email reminder with the link to the secure video conference meeting a day or two before the session.

Your personal information will not be reported by EKOS or CFLRI to any third party. As this Study involves small group discussions, the privacy and confidentiality of the research participants cannot be guaranteed with respect to the other research participants in the discussion and the online nature of the research.

The study results will be available upon completion of the study for you to access through a summary report, one-page summaries, webinars or podcasts. The findings will be generalized, however, and your identity will not be part of the reports. We will inform you about where you can access the findings.
