BC COVID-19 SPEAK Survey on Population Experience,
Action and Knowledge: Your Story, Our Future – Spring 2021
As part of British Columbia’s Public Health response to the COVID-19 pandemic we ask for your support to promote the BC COVID-19 SPEAK Round 2 Survey.
We encourage you and those in your networks to participate in the BC COVID-19 SPEAK Round 2 Survey to help us examine one year into the pandemic how British Columbians have been affected and how their experiences may inform recovery and re-opening.
The survey is currently open to all British Columbia residents aged 18 years and older until the 9th May 2021. You can take the survey here.
In May 2020 over 400,000 British Columbians participated in the first survey known as BC COVID-19 SPEAK: Your story, Our future.
Some of the key highlights from the first round of the SPEAK survey included:
- Families with children were struggling the most. They had significant concerns about their child’s overall well-being with school closures and significantly reduced social connections.
- Young adults were disproportionately affected by the pandemic in relation to employment, financial insecurity and disruption to significant development and life goals.
- Societal impacts have not been distributed equitably during the pandemic and are compounded for those already experiencing the most stress and with the least resources.
We hope you and others in your networks will lend your voices to this important survey to help further our understanding on the priorities for British Columbians as we seek to recover from the pandemic. We are grateful to the BCCDC Foundation for Public Health for its financial support of this survey.
Finally, thank you for your continued efforts to help protect yourself and all British Columbians during COVID-19.
