Mental Health Research Study of
Alberta CPAs and Candidates

Welcome to the Mental Health Research Study of Alberta CPAs and Candidates.

The purpose of this study is to help CPA Assist more effectively serve Alberta CPAs. As a part of this assessment you will be asked to respond to questions or statements about your mental health experience, work culture, and resiliency (e.g., personal health habits, workplace experience). You will also be asked about your awareness of and experience using the current health and wellness program for Alberta CPAs.

Your responses are completely confidential and anonymous. They will be aggregated and shared to CPA Alberta, but CPA Alberta will in no way have access to individual responses. The goal of this research study is to help CPA Alberta gain an understanding of the needs of Alberta CPAs and candidates, and improve its ability to support them.

On completion of the research study you will receive a personal resiliency report that will help create awareness of your resiliency level and provide some things to consider for your own action plan. As a bonus, you will be offered a free e-book, which provides insight on micro-skills that you can add to your day-to-day routines to help charge your battery and build resiliency.

NOTE: This is not a clinical measure or diagnostic tool; it is meant only to be a research tool.
