WHY: The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on our health, economy, and society. It has challenged individuals and institutions to think creatively about how they can harness their resources to help confront the crisis, politically, economically and socially. As vaccination rates rise, cases drop and businesses reopen, Canadians and global citizens are attempting to return to so-called “normal life”.
