Inter-Provincial Survey: From Food Access, Concerns and Perceptions During the COVID-19 Pandemic, 2020
The Institute for Sustainable Food Systems has partnered with universities across Canada to conduct a survey on food access, concerns and food system perceptions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The survey aims to advance our understanding of food access, purchasing and consumption behavior, as well as the food-related perceptions and concerns of Canadian consumers during the pandemic. We hope to provide evidence of the impacts of a pandemic, from a consumer’s perspective, on one of the basic human needs - food. This study will contribute to the on-going discussion on the importance and urgency of transitioning into a more reliable and resilient regional food system.
The survey can be completed in approximately 15 minutes. No personal information will be collected and all responses will be anonymous. This study is hosted by Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Ethics approval has been granted by the Research Ethics Board (firstname.lastname@example.org; 604-599-3163).
