The COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe ripple effects for the health and safety of Canadians. Not only are Canadians concerned about contracting COVID-19, but they are facing other significant challenges such as job losses, financial struggles and food insecurity. As the pandemic continues on, these struggles and their impacts are becoming increasingly evident.

Dalhousie University has conducted a survey and the preliminary results indicate that food security among Canadians is becoming a big concern. The survey suggests that 55% of Canadians surveyed are concerned about food security — much more than before the COVID-19 pandemic began. More information about the University’s survey results is slated to be released soon.
