COVID-19 in NA: Ask us anything [Webinar recording]


Canadians are worried

They believe that the Covid-19 pandemic poses a threat to the country, their personal finances, and their health. But how will public opinion affect their behaviour as consumers, citizens and investors?

Canadians have faced crises before. But we're entering this one with the lowest level of public resiliency and optimism we’ve seen in more than five years. And once the pandemic is resolved, how will its effects change the debate about macro-issues in the country?

Hear Darrell Bricker, Global CEO of Ipsos' Public Affairs team answer attendee questions during this interactive, virtual webinar examining how public mood around Covid-19 is changing, where concerns are most focused now, and how the crisis is affecting Canadian's behaviour now and in the future.

As this is happening, the team at Ipsos is using every tool at their disposal to keep track of what the American public knows, fears, experiences, and is doing in response. As we move from the “age of uncertainty” to the “time of coronavirus”, how will Americans adapt as consumers, citizens, and humans?
