Participate in the BC COVID‐19 SPEAK Survey

Island Health invites you, your families, and your friends to participate in the BC COVID-19 SPEAK Round 2 Survey.

In May 2020, over 400,000 British Columbians (including more than 97,000 Island Health residents) participated in the first survey known as BC COVID-19 SPEAK: Your story, Our future.

This new survey will help examine one year into the pandemic how British Columbians have been affected and how their experiences may inform recovery and re-opening.

Some of the key highlights from the first round of the BC COVID-19 SPEAK survey included:

  • Families with children were struggling the most and had significant concerns about their children (their overall well-being with school closures and significantly reduced social connections).
  • Young adults were disproportionately affected by the pandemic in relation to employment, financial insecurity and disruption to significant development and life goals.
  • Societal impacts have not been distributed equitably during the pandemic and are compounded for those already experiencing the most stress and with the least resources.
