The Project

In partnership with the University of Alberta's (UofA) Intercultural Communication Lab, this report reveals the experiences and emotions of those directly affected by COVID-19-related racism, discrimination, and prejudice, and is part of a broader and more in-depth COVID-19 related inquiry. Other aspects of this in-depth study include a general population canvassing of preventative behaviours aimed at slowing the spread of the virus, as well as more general perspectives about the virus, its origin, and its manifestation in Canada. Data gleaned from these other surveys will be released at a future point.
