Community Trends 2020 Role of Cities in COVID-19 Recovery


The Covid-19 pandemic has been an enormous challenge globally, nationally and locally. Its immediate impacts to human health and economic well-being have resulted in the suffering of thousands of Canadians. In comparison to other regions, BC has had success in limiting the loss of life – the result of strong leadership from public health and community buy-in on physical distancing measures. However, British Columbia remains under a state of emergency with big questions surrounding the long-term impact of the pandemic and no defined timetable for a vaccine. This year’s Community Trends Report (CTR) explores the challenges presented by the pandemic as well as the role of cities in supporting both the immediate and long-term recovery from this public health emergency.
