BC Centre for Disease Control Survey


B.C. has flattened the curve and we are preparing to carefully re-start services, the economy and our lives. Your input is important as we develop our action plans.

Your story, our future

BC COVID-19 SPEAK: Your story, our future is a population health survey to elicit citizen experience, knowledge and actions during the COVID-19 pandemic. This survey is the first of several activities that will strengthen our pandemic response and our understanding of the impacts of COVID-19 to date (social, economic, mental wellness and community wellness). 

At the end of the survey, you will be asked about participating in two important initiatives:

A serology survey (blood testing) to help determine immunity across the population
Planning for future waves in which identifying, containing and tracing are substantially strengthened through technology tools to enable integrated and coordinated information sharing

Please use the latest web browsers for optimal experience. The survey will be open until May 31.
