B.C. has flattened the curve and we are preparing to carefully re-start services, the economy and our lives.

Your story, our future

BC COVID-19 SPEAK: Your story, our future population health survey is now closed.

Thank you to all British Columbians who participated in the survey.

Results will be available in the summer, 2020.  If you agreed to participate in a future phase, you will be contacted by email.


The serosurvey is a key step in determining population susceptibility and exposure to Covid-19, assessing the risk of spread in subgroups, and complementing current diagnostic testing as well as potentially informing surveillance strategies. 

Many survey participants indicated interest in taking part in this next step to further help plan for British Columbia’s future. We are currently validating a number of serological tests, and part of that process is considering what an individual test result means. 

For those invited to participate in the serology study, they will be notified of the full procedure in the coming months and they can decide then whether they still wish to participate.

‎Thank you for your dedication to accuracy. As the survey is closed and the data has been de-identified, we are unable to change individual entries.

We ask about socio-demographic questions (like education, income, and ethnicity) to firstly ensure all segments of our population are properly represented based on available census data, and secondly, in recognition that many experiences of health and well-being are highly influenced by our backgrounds and circumstances. This information ensures planning is relevant and responsive to the needs of our diverse population. 


No. Qualtrics specifically configured the UBC instance to save all data to Canadian servers. Specifically, the survey information collected using this tool is stored in Toronto, Ontario and backed up in Montreal, Quebec.
