Third-year University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) students are researching public opinion on homelessness in Prince George.

Students in the Political Science 320, Canadian Politics and Policy, taught by Jason Morris, have launched a short survey to understand the perceptions and beliefs held regarding the cities’ unhoused population, as well as government responsibility for the issue.

The survey is 16 brief questions and takes about five to seven minutes to complete.

Those who agree to take the survey will be asked some basic demographic questions regarding identity, employment and the area of Prince George in which they reside.

Participants will then be questioned on their opinions regarding the homelessness situation in Prince George.

At the completion of the survey participants will also have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win one of two Amazon gift cards.

You can find the survey here.
