HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

The COVID-19 pandemic has touched all aspects of our society, and post-secondary education is no exception. When institutions abruptly transitioned online in March of 2020, students were forced to quickly adapt to an entirely new learning style—and right before final exams, no less. Many students missed out on summer employment opportunities, exacerbating existing affordability issues, while others expressed security concerns with exam proctoring software. Students have also struggled with anxiety and other mental health concerns as they navigate completing their degrees and entering the workforce during a global pandemic.

We hope these articles spark discussion on how governments, institutions, and other post-secondary stakeholders can work together to best support students and recent graduates as Canada begins to recover from COVID-19.
