In this global COVID-19 pandemic, governments and civil society organizations find themselves in uncharted territory, designing responses and delivering programs and services that will protect the health and safety of Canadians. More than ever before, overcoming this unprecedented challenge relies on the cooperation and direct involvement of every single Canadian. As the situation unfolds, it is of critical importance to monitor the attitudes, perceptions and behaviours of all Canadians.
