Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians - Trust in Others

Search box

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, it is necessary to quickly gather data to inform the public and decision makers. Currently, we are seeking your input on the level of trust that Canadians have in government, in businesses, and in others, and on their views regarding the reopening of workplaces and public spaces.

This information will be used by government organizations such as the Public Health Agency of Canada and Employment and Social Development Canada, and other types of organizations, to evaluate the delivery of health and social services and economic support, and to ensure best practices are adopted when re-opening workplaces and public spaces. Your information may also be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes.

The current questionnaire focusses on trust in others.
