BC asking for feedback on pandemic response in new survey

Apr 9 2021, 6:55 pm

British Columbia has launched another COVID-19 pandemic response survey and is asking its residents to give their feedback.

The survey, titled SPEAK 2, is asking British Columbians to share their experiences over the past 12 months, how the ongoing pandemic has affected them and their families, any existing barriers around vaccinations, and well as what they need for recovery.

“Today, we’re asking you once again to share your feedback on how COVID-19 and this pandemic has affected you,” Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said in a press conference on Thursday. “And what tools and support you need for our pandemic recovery in the coming months.”

The province’s first survey, Your story, our future, launched more than a year ago and received more than 400,000 responses. The initial round of surveys raised concerns around the wellbeing of children, as well as the effect that reduced social connections were having on people.

The survey opened on Thursday and will be available for approximately four weeks. The BCCDC says it should take between 15 to 20 minutes to complete and is available in 10 languages, including English, French, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Punjabi, Farsi, Arabic, Spanish, Korean, and American Sign Language.

Data collected through the survey will follow strict privacy practices and will be confidentially maintained.
