COVID-19: Impact on SSHRC programs, experts database and perspectives from our community.


Perspectives on COVID-19

Follow the journey of two SSHRC-funded researchers as they contribute to the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Check this page regularly to hear updates directly from the researchers. If you have questions for them, share them with us on Twitter or Facebook.

Eric Kennedy
York University


Over the next two years, Assistant Professor Eric Kennedy and his team, including Associate Professor Claudia Chaufan of York University and Associate Professor Kieran O’Doherty of the University of Guelph, will carry out a cross-Canada survey to document how Canadians understand the outbreak. Who do they trust for information? How are they adapting their behaviours? Is their perception of risk changing? The research will help better understand the social dimensions of the COVID-19 outbreak and inform response efforts. The team invites practitioners and international researchers to participate in this project.

Myles Leslie
University of Calgary


Professor Myles Leslie, associate director of research at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy, and his team are assessing how COVID-19 preparedness and response policies are being transmitted to, and implemented in, hospital and family health centres in Alberta. Through interviews with public health workers and site visits with front-line clinicians, the team will better understand how policies, protocols, priorities and communication channels are functioning. Together, they will help identify opportunities for improving response efforts in real time—and for future public health emergencies.
