OTTAWA ABORIGINAL COALITION
Share the stories of Indigenous Community Members experiences of COVID-19 in Ottawa.
What We Did
The Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition, together with Ottawa Public Health and the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research launched a survey on May 19th 2021. The purpose of this research was to gather the stories of Indigenous community members experiences of COVID-19 in Ottawa. The survey was open for two months and 1077 community members participated in the survey.
Thank you to all our community members for honouring us with your story

What We Did
One year after COVID-19 in 2021 the OAC did a survey to find out what happened during the first year of the Pandemic for Ottawa Urban Indigenous people.
Over 1000 community members shared their stories and experiences of what happened during the first year of COVID-19.
Where We Are Now
We are in the process of going through the data and bring people's experiences together in order to tell the story of what happened during the first year of the pandemic for Ottawa Urban Indigenous people.
We plan to present the findings of the research to the community in October 2022.
