Census of Montréal designers: join us
Montréal’s Bureau du design is preparing to carry out Montréal’s first survey aimed at creating sociodemographic and socioeconomic statistical portraits of the city’s design and architectural professionals and of Montréal design and architectural firms.
The survey’s methodology will focus on combining data from both traditional and new sources. It will be starting in February 2019 with a broad census of active designers and architects with home addresses on the Island of Montréal.
The self-enumeration form and survey will be distributed over the coming months through the Making Mtl platform and via various means, including partner organizations, social networks, and the Design Montréal website and newsletter.
- Census February – July 2019
- Survey and consultations August – October 2019
- Report production November 2019 – January 2020
- Distribution February 2020
It goes without saying that the statistics generated by this survey will benefit the entire Montréal design and architecture ecosystem. A detailed analysis of the survey and consultation data will help to identify employment, human resource, and business issues. The Bureau du design’s goal for this survey is to help better characterize the unique nature of Montréal’s design and architectural services; measure the “weight” of this economic sector in Montréal; understand the issues, challenges, and obstacles it faces; and assess needs in order to provide suitable services or programs.
