Thousands of Canadians are preparing to go back to work, but in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many workplaces will look very different than they did a few months ago.

Some provinces are beginning to relax the restrictions that kept many businesses and service industries shuttered for the last two months.

Physical distancing remains mandatory, and personal protective equipment is required for anyone working with customers.

Meanwhile, companies like Twitter and Shopify have announced their intentions to allow employees to work from home permanently.

Our question this week: How has COVID-19 changed the way you think about work? 

Are you returning to work in the coming weeks? If so, are adequate measures in place to protect your health and safety?

Do you want to keep working from home after COVID-19? Has the pandemic forced a rethink in terms of your work-life balance?
