Survey on the Impacts of COVID-19 on Indigenous Youth
The purpose of this survey is to provide insight into the impact of COVID-19 on First Nations, Métis, and Inuit youth. In line with the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s other Resetting Normal reports, the data collected through this survey will be used to understand the impacts of the pandemic and provide recommendations as we rebuild. The series explores risks to human rights exposed by the pandemic and proposes new ways to build a gender-equal Canada in pandemic recovery efforts. Essentially, we can’t accept a “new normal” where people are worse off than before. Instead, we must reset normal by putting gender equality at the centre and deeply integrating the effects of historical and ongoing settler colonialism on First Nations, Métis, and Inuit youth into our work.
While a report and associated data tools presenting aggregated data will be widely shared, the complete data set will only be accessible by the survey development team and their colleagues at PRA and the Foundation. However, participants can request a copy of their data from the Foundation at any time. Participants will also be asked to provide their email address if they would like to receive a copy of the survey findings.
The idea for the survey came out of the Indige-Health National Hub for First Nations, Métis and Inuit Futures, a group composed of and chaired by Indigenous youth and funded through the Building the Field of Teen Healthy Relationships initiative. The survey was developed by a team of Indigenous youth, supported by PRA Inc. and the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
