Project Pandemic: Canada Reports on COVID-19
Project Pandemic is a Canada-wide data project aimed at supporting community preparedness by sharing data among local, regional and national news organizations.
The national effort assists news organizations by providing free up-to-the-minute maps, audience engagement tools and other resources.
The project harnesses a cooperative of 13 universities and colleges and the national broadcasters Global News, CTV and APTN, along with news organizations from coast to coast, including National Observer, Regina Leader-Post, Hamilton Spectator and La Presse.
All news organizations, no matter their size or capacity, are invited to join and access these tools by submitting their information on the Project Pandemic: Canada Reports on COVID-19 reporter application form.
