As Provincial and Territorial governments across Canada implement strategies to lift business closures and physical distancing measures, it is necessary to gather information on how Canadians are reacting to, and being affected by, the reopening of economic and social activities. The survey covers the recovery of economic and labour activities, and public and social life.

This information may be used by government organizations at all levels, as well as other types of organizations, to inform the delivery of services and support to Canadians, during and after the pandemic.

Information from partially completed or unsaved questionnaires may also be retained and used.

    Survey-specific questions

    Why are you currently conducting a survey on COVID-19?

    As Provincial and Territorial governments across Canada implement strategies to lift business closures and physical distancing measures, it is necessary to gather information on how Canadians are reacting to, and being affected by, the reopening of economic and social activities. The survey covers the recovery of economic and labour activities, and public and social life.

    How was I selected?

    You were selected for this survey because you participated in one of our crowdsourcing initiatives, and agreed to be contacted by Statistics Canada.

    Why do you conduct this survey exclusively online?

    This survey involves online data collection only.

    There are many advantages to conducting a survey exclusively online. This method allows us to collect, process and publish information more rapidly. Please note that we only publish aggregated, compiled and anonymized data. We do not publish information that could identify a respondent.

    Can I participate in the survey over the phone?

    At the moment, it is not possible to participate in this survey by phone. However, if you need help accessing your electronic questionnaire, contact us.

    Can I volunteer for this survey?

    Thank you for your interest in this survey. However, we are conducting the survey among a predetermined and representative sample of Canadians. We therefore cannot accept new requests to participate.

    When are you planning to release the results from this survey?

    We want to make the results of this survey available to Canadians as soon as possible. We are aiming to publish them in July 2020 in The Daily, Statistics Canada's official release bulletin. The official release date is still to be confirmed.

    What are the benefits of participating in this survey?

    You will provide information that is essential in understanding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. This information may be used by government organizations at all levels, as well as other types of organizations, to inform the delivery of services and support to Canadians, during and after the pandemic.

    Why are you still conducting surveys? What are the actions taken by Statistics Canada to protect its own employees and the population?

    We are following the COVID-19 situation very closely and implementing the directives and recommendations of public health authorities to ensure the safety of Canadians, including all of our employees.

    Currently, no surveys are being conducted in person. We are only conducting surveys for Statistics Canada's critical programs by telephone and online. This allows us to continue to publish essential data on the impacts of the pandemic on the economy and on individuals.

    We have added this survey on COVID-19 to our collection activities because the current situation requires a rapid assessment of its impact on the mental and physical health of individuals. The information will allow us to evaluate the need for health and social services, as well as economic support during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

    How will you safeguard the confidentiality of my information?

    As with all Statistics Canada surveys, any information provided will remain confidential pursuant to the Statistics Act.
    Statistics Canada takes the privacy of Canadians very seriously. Published data can never identify you or your household.

    To find out more about the measures in place to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, visit Statistics Canada's Trust Centre.
