ASA-24

 The ASA24 questionnaire should take about 30 – 45 minutes to complete. There will be instructions on how to complete the online questionnaire on the website, after you have logged in.

Also, “Help” button is available at the left bottom corner of the screen. If you do not have time to finish all the questions in one sitting, you can save the questionnaire and complete it at a later time by clicking on “Finish Later” in the upper right corner of the screen. There is a time limit of 32 hours to submit the questionnaire. For example, if you start a questionnaire at 2pm, you will have until 10pm the following day to submit.

Missing Food Items

We are using the 2016 version of ASA24, and unfortunately some Canadian foods may not be found in the 2016 version. If no foods are a good match, you can try one of the following:

  • Try to recreate the item by entering the main food item and adding details about the food later.
    • Poutine: Enter ‘French Fries’ in “Find Food and Drink” section, then add cheese and gravy in “Add Details” section
  • Try a different spelling or name to find the food item.
    • Perogy Pierogi
    • Omelette  Omelet
    • Timbits   Doughnut holes
    • Cabbage Rolls   Stuffed Cabbage
    • Pho  Pho bo
    • Kimchi  Kim chee
    • Naan Bread  Nan Bread
  • After you search for a food item, scroll down to the bottom of the list and select “I can’t find the food I am looking for”. You will be asked more details about that food in the ‘Add Details’ Section.

There may also be some foods that are not available in the ASA24 version. For example, here are some foods that we could not find (please note there may be more):

 

Meat and Poultry Fish Vegetables Beverages Dairy Main Dishes
Goose Pike Fennel Kombucha Blue Cheese Ginger Beef
Pheasant Pickerel Heart of Palm Bubble Tea Crème fraiche Butter Chicken
Boar Arctic Char Water chestnuts Vietnamese Sub / Banh Mi
