Welcome to the Community Health Survey.
The survey should take less that 10 minutes to complete and is open to Canadian residents over the age of 18.
About the Survey
In a very short period of time, COVID-19 has profoundly changed life for millions of people across Canada and around the world. People are experiencing changes in both how they live and work. Many of us are facing employment uncertainty, working the front lines without breaks and others are now working from home, either alone or with their family by their side. At the same time, we are all concerned about the health of our family, friends and communities.
Together with the Pepler Group, we have designed a survey tool intended to provide anunderstanding of how people are coping, how we are accessing health services and what the challenges and gaps are.
The survey presents a unique opportunity to understand how people are impacted by the current pandemic. This will be important not only for supporting people through the COVID-19 pandemic, but in understanding and supporting people across a range of stressful situations after the pandemic.
The mental health impact of the pandemic may last longer than the physical health impact. The survey will help reveal how people are responding and coping during these unprecedented times. Data from this survey will be used to help healthcare professionals develop interventions to support people during and after the virus pandemic, and policymakers find out how the COVID-19 is having on the public’s mental health.
The survey asks questions about family life and relationships, overall health and wellbeing, and how they are coping during the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular summaries of key findings will be made available throughout the study and will be shared directly with government agencies and the community, to inform the shaping of future mental health services and supports.
This survey is open to all members of the public who are over the age of 18. We all need to support each other during this time and beyond. Please share this survey with anyone who you think would benefit.
