Capturing the Stories of BC Workers During the COVID-19 Pandemic
This survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Your answers will be archived as part of the 'COVID Chronicles: Labour's Story' Project initiated by the BC Labour Heritage Centre. By completing this survey, you agree that your answers may be shared publicly by the BCLHC through print, online or otherwise. You can choose to remain anonymous; answers will only be shared publicly with either your first name + last initial (John D.) and/or industry association (ex. "hospital worker"). We request your email address so we can follow up if needed, and will only contact you with your permission.
