Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many questions have been raised about its impact on Canadian society. In order to address this information need, Statistics Canada has developed short crowd-sourcing questionnaires to collect information on specific topics related to the impacts of the pandemic.
The focus topic of the questionnaire is The Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians – Trust in Others. It went live on May 26th and will be available for feedback until June 8, 2020. The purpose is to collect data on the level of trust that Canadians have in government, in businesses, and in their fellow citizens, as well as on their views regarding the reopening of workplaces and public spaces.
