Carelton Students Asking for Your Help with Insurance Research

Students in the graduate program in heritage conservation in the School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University are currently working on a project to examine the relationship between heritage properties and insurance. It is being undertaken as part of CDNS 5402 - Heritage Conservation: Theory and practice. The focus of the project is an effort to try and understand perceptions surrounding the cost of insurance for heritage properties in Canada as held by both homeowners and insurance brokers. This information will be used to identify any trends and areas for further research.

Your information will be kept confidential and your identity will not be revealed. Survey results will contain an anonymous identifier, and will not contain any personal information such as name, address, or phone number, or IP address. Data collected will be used by students in the completion of a course project, and possibly in the publication of a short professional paper. Following the completion of the project, the data will be deleted from the Survey Monkey server.
