Canadian COVID-19 Antibody and Health Survey
Statistics Canada is conducting a new cycle of the Canadian COVID-19 Antibody and Health Survey (CCAHS), in partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force (CITF).
Beginning in early April, a total of 100,000 randomly selected Canadians over the age of 18 will receive kits to participate over the three waves of this survey, which will occur in April, May and June.
We are seeking your support to raise Canadians’ awareness of this survey and encourage participation.
This important survey seeks to shed light on various components of the virus and its impact on Canadians, including:
- Chronic conditions and symptoms
- Long-term effects
- Health and well-being of Canadians
- Challenges associated with access to health care, and more.
This information will be collected in two parts: an electronic questionnaire and a self-administered dried blood sample COVID-19 antibody kit. Survey participants will receive a personal lab report to find out whether they have antibodies against the virus that causes COVID-19, and whether those antibodies may have been produced from a previous infection, vaccination, or both.
The data collected will help protect the health and well-being of Canadians and guide Canada’s COVID-19 recovery efforts.
Guarding Canadians’ privacy is at the heart of everything our Agency does, and we follow rigorous protocols and procedures to keep Canadians’ data safe and secure. For more information, visit our Trust Centre.
