Strengthening Canada’s COVID-19 recovery

While Canada has weathered the COVID-19 pandemic better than many nations, months of physical distancing and social isolation have taken a drastic toll. According to data from the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Assessing the Impacts of COVID-19 on Mental Health monitoring survey, 77% of Canadian adults feel negative emotions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Recommendations

Prioritizing investments in ethnoculturally appropriate care for mental health initiatives, such as free and subsidized non-pharmacological therapy, as a cornerstone of our country’s COVID-19 recovery. This should be undertaken in partnership with provincial governments.

Maintaining funding levels for ethnocultural social services established during the COVID-19 emergency. 

Question for Candidates

Will you maintain funding levels established during COVID-19 for ethnocultural social services?
