Description / Summary
The annual report of the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada (CPHO) provides an opportunity to examine the state of public health in Canada and to stimulate dialogue about issues critical to the health of Canadians.
This year’s annual report describes the heavy toll that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Canadian society, both directly and through the steps taken to mitigate its effect. Through this challenging time, there has been incredible collaboration across sectors and between individuals, community organizations, businesses, governments and scientists. The aim of this report is to suggest opportunities to build on this collaboration to strengthen our nation’s preparedness for future public health emergencies. In doing so, we can build a stronger society for all Canadians.
