Survey Requirements:
- Link to your survey
- Copy of your hospital/academic Research Ethics Board approval

Your package will be forwarded to the OAGS Research Committee for review and final approval before promotions begin.

Please note that we usually only post/circulate surveys that are lead/promoted by our own OAGS MEMBERS within Ontario – for FREE.  Otherwise, there is a calendar quarterly fee of $200.  In both cases, your request MUST be approved by the OAGS Research Committee. 

We do not divulge our contact list, nor do we usually send a special distribution (unless otherwise directed by the board depending on the content).  Instead, it will be posted on the website/social media and included in the quarterly e-update to members.
