Alberta Immigration needs your help

Submitted by on March 2, 2011 – 12:19 pmNo Comment

Welcome to AlbertaWe received a request from ZINC Research and Twist Marketing, who are work­ing on behalf of Alberta Employment and Immigration, to approach our read­ers about par­tic­i­pat­ing in focus group research.

The research is about the Government of Alberta’s Immigration Website.

Here’s what they’re look­ing for:

ZINC Research and Twist Marketing are seek­ing par­tic­i­pants to spend from 45 to 90 min­utes with them either at a focus group facil­ity or online to share your opin­ions on the por­tal and how help­ful online resources are in the immi­gra­tion expe­ri­ence. There will be a cash hon­o­rar­ium for your participation.

If you are inter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing, please fol­low the link below and com­plete the short ques­tion­naire. They are col­lect­ing some pro­fil­ing (no house­hold income) and con­tact infor­ma­tion (name, e-​​mail and tele­phone num­ber) to ensure that they can talk to a diverse group of immi­grants, prospec­tive immi­grants, and set­tle­ment ser­vices staff.


Focus groups will be held in Edmonton March 10 to 12, 2011. Online focus groups with inter­na­tional par­tic­i­pants will be held dur­ing the week of March 14 2011.

Thanks for your assis­tance. We are pos­i­tive that in lis­ten­ing to peo­ple like you, this research will assist the Alberta Government in fine-​​tuning and assist­ing immi­grants in their tran­si­tion to the new life in our province.

They’re ask­ing you to com­plete their qual­i­fi­ca­tion ques­tion­naire BEFORE MARCH 7, 2011.

And they are par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in talk­ing to peo­ple who are liv­ing in, or com­ing from, the US or the UK.
