About the Social Contours & COVID-19 Survey


We are now into the 2nd year of the COVID-19 pandemic and so much has changed in the lives of Saskatchewan residents. Since early May 2020, our research team has been collecting data about what Saskatchewanians are thinking and doing, gathering information on how we interact, act, work, play, learn, move, think, and protect ourselves and asking questions relevant to the current state of 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.

Immense thanks to everyone who has taken our survey, be it one round or all 10, since May 4, 2020. We are not currently running a survey, as we focus on analyzing, disseminating, and mobilizing the data we have collected from more than 10,000 Saskatchewan respondents. Stay tuned--as the pandemic shifts, we may be back with new surveys relevant to the current state of COVID in Saskatchewan. In the meantime, we encourage you to take a look at our results


The Social Contours and COVID-19 survey has been created by a multinational team of diverse researchers from different institutions, including the University of Saskatchewan. It is hosted by Voxco, a Canadian-owned and managed company whose data is securely stored in Canada and is completely anonymous.
