HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

COVID-19 is an extraordinary health and social crisis, challenging Canadian and global communities like nothing they’ve faced in decades. As the leading organization for girls in Canada, Girl Guides of Canada wanted to explore how girls are affected by COVID-19. In an informal survey of girls ages 14-17+, we asked them what they are worried about – and what’s giving them hope.

By sharing their experiences, it’s clear that the impacts of COVID-19 on these girls’ lives are far-reaching. School is disrupted. They can’t interact in the ways they normally do with friends – often a key support network for girls. And their personal and family finances may be impacted. All of these factors appear to be affecting their mental health.
