Invitation to participate in a Statistics Canada Survey on the impacts of COVID-19 on health care workers

CSHBC is advising registrants of an opportunity to participate in the Statistics Canada survey Impacts of Covid-19 on Health Care Workers:  Infection Prevention and Control.

Please see the letter below from Statistics Canada which contains further information about the study, and how to participate. Note that the online questionnaire is accessible until December 13, 2020.


Below is an invitation to complete a short questionnaire on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on health care workers. This crowdsourcing initiative is a collaboration between Statistics Canada, Health Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information. We encourage anyone working in a health care setting to participate.

Invitation from Statistics Canada: 

Your participation is important: Your voice matters

Our objective is to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on Canadian health care workers, with particular focus on access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection prevention and control (IPC) measures in the workplace. The information we collect will help to inform the delivery of health care services, and to better understand what health care workers need in terms of equipment, training, and support. 

We want to hear from you, whether you provide direct health care services to individuals (e.g. physicians, nurses, massage therapists, dentists, dieticians), technical support to medical staff (e.g. receptionists, technicians), or other services in a health care setting (e.g. cleaning and food services staff, security).

Please take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire and feel free to forward this email to others—the more people participate, the better the data.

Participating is easy and secure
