PHAC Survey of the impact of COVID-19 among people who use drugs or alcohol

The Public Health Agency of Canada has published an online survey of people who use drugs or alcohol to learn about the impact of COVID-19 on their access to sexually transmitted and blood-borne infection (STBBI) related services, including harm reduction services in Canada.

The survey is now live until February 5, 2021. 


What is this survey about?
This survey asks questions about changes in access to these services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also asks about mental health, racism, stigma and discrimination, substance use, domestic violence and your housing, social and economic situation because these issues have an impact on access to services.


Who can take part in this survey?
Some groups in Canada, including people who use drugs or alcohol, are more affected by STBBI than other people in Canada. If you identify as a person who uses drugs or alcohol and are 18 years or older, you are eligible to participate in this survey.

The survey is entirely voluntary. No directly identifying personal information such as your name or phone number is asked. The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential. You can stop completing the survey at any time.

It will take about 10-20 minutes to complete the survey.
