Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians - Experiences of Discrimination

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, it is necessary to gather data to inform the public and decision makers.

There is currently no crowdsource data collection taking place.

We would also like to know how COVID-19 pandemic has impacted your confidence and trust in various institutions, the general public, and your neighbours. Data will help determine if discrimination during the pandemic has disproportionally impacted certain groups more than others.

If the subject of this data collection is not what you expected, it may be because we have just changed the questionnaire. Please visit this page regularly to complete the various questionnaires.
