Canadians report an increase in their level of stress from the month before COVID-19 to now, and most often cite concerns about contracting or a family member contracting COVID-19 as the driver behind that stress. Canadians are more likely to report their mental health is worse or somewhat worse than before COVID-19 rather than better or somewhat better citing increased stress and uncertainty. The main concern of Canadians related to the impact of COVID-19 is personal financial hardship and economic impact and job loss, and Canadians most often rank keeping the economy healthy so people have jobs and income as the most important priority for the mental health of Canadians now and one year from now.
