Sophie Bergeron (Université de Montréal) and Jacinthe Dion (Université du Québec à Chicoutimi), co-principal investigators of the project, have received a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to conduct a longitudinal study on 3000 adolescents from two large regions of Quebec (Montréal and the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean).

The main objective of the “Precursors of youth’s sexual and romantic relationships study” (PRESAJ) is to better understand young people's sexuality and dating relationships and the challenges they entail. The results will help us take action and empower young people during their romantic and sexual relationship development.

Our team is composed of researchers and partners from: the Université de Montréal (Sophie Bergeron and Isabelle Daigneault), the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (Jacinthe Dion), the Université du Quebec à Montreal (Martine Hébert, Martin Blais, Natacha Godbout), the National Institute of Public Health of Quebec (Dr Marc Steben), the University of New Brunswick (Lucia O’Sullivan) and the University of Zagreb, Croatia (Aleksandar Stulhofer).
