RISC Montreal North



RISC-Montreal is a collaborative research project between the Metropolis Institute, the University of Montreal, the CIUSSS du Nord-de-l’Ile-de-Montréal and other organizational partners. The project is carrying out a web-based survey and serological data collection to provide a better understanding of the risk factors for infection and the true number of people who have had COVID-19 in Montréal North, which has had the highest per capita rate of COVID-19 on the island of Montréal since the beginning of the pandemic. The information collected will provide decision makers the tools to establish successful prevention strategies which will support future efforts to mitigate this disease or the spread of future diseases.
