National survey about the impact of COVID-19 on Black communities

This is the first survey of its kind, and the information we collect will be essential for advocacy and program development for our communities in BC and across the country.

The Public Health Agency of Canada and Black researchers from across the country have launched a national survey about the impact of COVID-19 on Black communities. This 10-20-minute survey collects information about food security, employment, discrimination, mental health, financial security, and housing stability. The final section focuses on access to services to prevent sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections, and people who do not access these services will automatically skip that section.

This is the first survey of its kind, and the information we collect will be essential for advocacy and program development for our communities in BC and across the country. This is an important opportunity for African, Caribbean and Black communities in all 10 provinces and in the territories, too.

The survey findings will be made available to you through a number of knowledge translation tools, including virtual presentations and ACB-NEWG members’ organizational websites.The survey link will be available until July 12, 2021.
