Survey to Determine How COVID-19 is Impacting Canadians with Disabilities

Statistics Canada has launched a survey on how COVID-19 is impacting Canadians with disabilities and those with long-term health conditions. The survey includes questions about employment, household expenses, support networks and access to services. It will be posted online until July 6th . The more people who answer the survey, the better the information will be. So we are encouraging you to reach out to your staff, volunteers, clients, partners and anyone else in your network to let them know about it.

We have included the link to the survey below. Please fill it out. And spread the word!

Thank you.

Comme vous le savez peut-être, Statistique Canada a lancé un sondage sur l’impact de la COVID-19 sur les Canadiens en situation de handicap et les personnes avec des problèmes de santé à long terme. Le sondage est composé de questions relatives à l’emploi, les dépenses du ménage, les réseaux de soutien et l’accès aux services, entre autres. Il sera disponible en ligne jusqu’au 6 juillet. Plus le nombre de personnes qui répondent à l’enquête est élevé, plus les informations seront bonnes. Nous vous encourageons donc à communiquer avec votre personnel, vos bénévoles, vos clients, vos partenaires et toute autre personne de votre réseau pour leur en faire part.   

Nous avons joint le lien vers le sondage, ci-dessous. Veuillez remplir le sondage et faites passer le mot!

Merci.
