Three years after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, life in Canada has changed in many ways. Economic activity in Canada has proved resilient throughout the pandemic, as households and businesses adjusted to the enforcement and removal of public health restrictions. However, many of the social impacts of the pandemic, particularly those related to mental health challenges and substance use among younger Canadians, are still being felt.

The presentation "Research to Insights: A look at Canada's economy and society three years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic," released today, includes 10 charts that summarize some of the major economic and demographic shifts that are shaping the current economic and social situation.
