About us

Our initiative is in its infancy, but we hope in the days and weeks to come, COVID-19 Resources Canada will become a one-stop-shop for those who need COVID-19 resources and connect them with those who have the extra capacity (or materials) to offer.

Who we are

We are a group of Canadian researchers, students, activists, web developers and volunteers who want to help our country’s COVID-19 response.

Our goals are to:

  • Serve as a reliable source of information and expertise for COVID-19 research in Canada
  • Support & facilitate coordination of Canadian COVID-19 research efforts
  • Support COVID-19 capacity-building in public health, research and grassroots initiatives
