Take the Social Contours & COVID-19 Survey!

We are now almost a year into the COVID-19 pandemic and so much has changed in the lives of Saskatchewan residents. Since early May, our research team has been collecting data about what Saskatchewanians are thinking and doing about the pandemic. This information is analyzed to learn more about COVID-19 in our province and to share these learnings with others, including policy-makers, health care professionals, and the people of Saskatchewan.

Our research team is back with Round 8 of the Social Contours and COVID-19 survey, gathering information throughout February on how we interact, act, work, play, learn, move, think, and protect ourselves and asking some new questions relevant to the current state of the pandemic.

If you have never taken the survey, we need your input; if you have taken it before, please take this new Round 8 survey. Your participation is greatly appreciated. The more data we collect, the better informed our strategies and guidance can be and the lower our risk of outbreak and infection. Working together, we can flatten that curve again.

It is hosted by Voxco, a Canadian-owned and managed company whose data is securely stored in Canada and is completely anonymous.
