Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Canada, CBC Saskatchewan has strived to cover as many aspects of the virus's impact on the province and its people as possible. We've looked at effects on business, parenting, sports and so much more.

We know there have been gaps in our coverage. And we know that as the pandemic continues, who it affects most severely and in what ways will continue to evolve.

We want to tell more stories about how the pandemic is touching the province's most vulnerable and marginalized populations. Speaking with organizations is one thing; publishing personal stories that get at the heart of these issues and humanizes the pandemic's effect is another.

CBC is committed to representing the diversity of the communities it serves and wants to ensure it is giving a voice to as wide a range of Saskatchewan's residents as possible. 

That's where you come in.

We're looking for people to fill out the questionnaire below and/or share it. At the moment, we're particularly interested in hearing from:

  • Inmates and people who have been released from correctional facilities during the pandemic.

  • People who have experienced interpersonal (domestic) violence during the pandemic.

  • People who are experiencing unstable housing and poverty.

  • Immigrants and other recent newcomers.

  • People with disabilities.

Although we are looking for the above specific stories, if the pandemic has affected you in another way, we want to hear your story.
