StatCan COVID-19: Data to Insights for a Better Canada

A series of articles on various subjects which explore the impact of COVID-19 on the socio-economic landscape. New articles will be released periodically.

  • People living in apartments and larger households were at higher risk of dying from COVID-19 during the first wave of the pandemic

    The risks of mortality due to COVID-19 have been found to be higher for some Canadians (e.g., older population, especially those living in long term care residences, etc.). For Canadians living in close quarters there could also be an increased risk. This article examines the rate of mortality due to COVID-19 associated with people living in different types of private dwellings in Quebec and Ontario. Additionally, the size of the household and the living arrangements are also explored among individuals.

  • Working from home: Productivity and preferences

    To what extent are teleworkers more or less productive now relative to when they were at their usual place of work? For those who are less productive, what are the main barriers to productivity? Once the pandemic is over, how many Canadians would prefer to work most of their hours at home or outside the home? Answers to these questions are crucial to inform discussions about the sustainability of telework in a post COVID-19 context. To shed light on these questions, this study uses the supplement to the Labour Force Survey of February 2021.

  • COVID-19 vaccine willingness among Canadian population groups

    The success of Canada's vaccination program relies on the willingness of Canadians to receive the vaccine. Using data from the Canadian Community Health Survey, this article examines the proportion of people who reported being very or somewhat likely to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Specifically this article explores the willingness among population groups designated as visible minorities, immigrants, Indigenous people, and LGBTQ2+ Canadians.
