Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many questions have been raised about its impact on Canadian society. Statistics Canada (StatsCan) is hosting an ongoing series of crowdsourced data collection activities entitled the Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians.

The newest survey Impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians – Trust in Others, is open to all Canadians from May 26 to June 8, and focuses on the level of trust that Canadians have in government, in businesses, and in their fellow citizens, and their views regarding the reopening of workplaces and public spaces.

All members of the Defence Team and their families are encouraged to complete the StatsCan online survey before June 8.

Defence Team COVID-19 - Mental health

The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in a high degree of uncertainty and disruption to our lives, and it is not unusual to feel a heightened degree of anxiety and worry about the potential impact on yourself and your family.

As we continue to navigate through this uncertain time, Defence Team members can access a variety of resources and information to help maintain and improve our mental health and overall personal well-being.


As the public service gets ready to welcome a new cohort of summer students, managers and supervisors must prepare them to work as part of a virtual team. New learning paths are now available to guide the successful integration of students into the virtual work environment.
