Dear Member of the Canadian Space Community:
My name is Aram Daniel Kerkonian and I am completing a Doctor of Civil Law Degree at McGill University's Institute of Air and Space Law. The focus of my doctoral research is on Canada's regulatory framework related to space. As part of this research, I have prepared a questionnaire for members of the Canadian space community (government, industry, academia and others) meant to elicit perspectives on the role, efficacy and overall purpose of Canada's regulatory framework related to space. Your insights will inform part of my analysis, conclusions, recommendations and proposals related to Canada's space regulatory framework. My research is supervised by Prof. Ram Jakhu.
It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete the questionnaire and you are welcome to complete as many or as few of the questions as you desire. Of course, the more information that is provided, the more significant will be your contribution to the final product. Although I will be able to identify participants and their answers, none of the information provided will be attributed to you or any entity you may represent in any way (including publications, presentations, etc.).
The questionnaire is available until 15 December, 2019 and can be accessed at the following link: https://forms.gle/RPQv9CsPhBhcHZq17
I would very much appreciate it if you would share this note and/or link with your Canadian space networks, especially with those you believe would be interested in completing the questionnaire. Any questions can be directed to Aram Kerkonian.
The questionnaire has been approved by McGill University's Research Ethics Board (#138-0819). It is required that you read and accept the Background and Participant Consent sections found at the top of the first page of the questionnaire before beginning.
I thank you for your time and thoughtful comments and appreciate your desire to help shape recommendations on the future of Canadian space regulation.
Very truly yours,
Aram Daniel Kerkonian, JMCASI
