- Project description: The COVID-19 epidemic has brought unprecedented restrictions to our social lives and daily routines. The financial burden caused by Canada’s economic shut down; the introduction of policy proposals restricting civil rights and liberties; and, the uncertainty surrounding when – and if – life can return to normal are all significant stressors in this time of crisis. How are Canadians adapting to the events surrounding the epidemic, and what are the implications for democratic citizenship post-COVID?
