(July 29, 2020) Grandparents and great-grandparents make significant contributions to family well-being in Canada. In some families, they play an integral role in family life and take a lead role in raising their grandchildren in a grand-family. Grand-families are diverse, unique and an important part of Canada’s family landscape.

To explore the unique experiences, realities and strengths of grandparents, great-grandparents and grand-families in Prince Edward Island, the Vanier Institute is conducting a short survey.

The Grand-families in PEI Survey is open to any grandparent or great-grandparent who lives in the province.

A summary of the results will be published on the Vanier Institute website in Fall 2020.
