COVID-19 PANDEMIC HAS CREATED A NEW GROUP OF VULNERABLE CANADIANS: SURVEY
On National 211 Day, United Way Centraide Canada has released new data and survey results showing that many Canadians are struggling to pay bills and dealing with mental health issues for the first time in their lives as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
