The Health and Behavioural Impacts of COVID-19 on Youth: Results from the Canadian Perspectives Survey Series 1

The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected the daily lives of all Canadians. However, relatively little is known about how the health, behaviour, and social activities of Canadian youth are affected and how they are coping with the situation. Canada’s youth represent about one quarter of the country’s population and will continue to be a large and important group within the Canadian population (Statistics Canada, 2019). Furthermore, youth are more likely to be at risk for poor mental health both prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic (Findlay, 2017; Findlay & Arim, 2020).
