COVID-19 Public Trust And Readiness Barometer

A guide to safely navigating the late-Covid economy – June 2022 Edition

For many Canadians, the strictest pandemic measures are still a fresh memory. This year, perhaps, feels a bit different – more open, more normal. Yet, despite this, a persistent lack of certainty continues to frustrate. As Canadians attempt to enjoy the present and most appear ready or even eager to resume elements of their pre-pandemic lives, the transition back to normal is not without challenges. Nevertheless, our recent research suggests widespread feelings of confidence and goodwill that will likely help Canadians navigate this period of change – including inevitable hiccups – relatively well.
