In partnership with Ottawa Public Health (OPH) and the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research, the Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition (OAC) developped a community-based research project called “Ottawa Indigenous Community Members’ Experiences of COVID-19.” 

The research is looking at the experiences of the Ottawa urban Indigenous community members (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) since March 2020.

Be part of the story of COVID-19 and how it impacted the Indigenous community in Ottawa!
The goal is to get 1,000 Indigenous community members to respond.

If you are an Indigenous person and over 18 please fill out the survey. If you are a non-Indigenous person, we would appreciate your help to circulate the flyer. 

As part of your participation in this project, you will receive : 

  • $50 for your participation in the survey.
  • A small gift.
  • Mental health, cultural and spiritual supports after you have completed the survey.
  • Referrals to appropriate services and programs in the Ottawa community.
