A Sustainable and Inclusive Pandemic Recovery
In Canada, the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected women, lower-income households, BIPOC, young adults, and those living with disabilities and mental illness. As government policy-makers move ahead with a post-pandemic economic recovery plan, it is imperative these groups aren’t glossed over.
This February, the Data Visionaries will explore how data informed decisions can help BC's economic recovery address well-being and inequality. From food security to healthcare to the tech sector, how will new innovations and data create equitable solutions and opportunities that benefit all Canadians?
