COVID-19 living evidence profile #4: What went well and what could have gone better in the COVID-19 response in Canada, as well as what will need to go well in the future given any available foresight work being conducted?

With increasing numbers of Canadians getting vaccinated each day, the time to examine the response to the COVID-19 pandemic while it is still fresh in the minds of policymakers and stakeholders is quickly approaching. Answers to questions about what could have been done better and what was done well are necessary to allow us to learn from both the missteps and the successes in the COVID-19 responses that were implemented during the pandemic. This reflexive lens will help to ensure that Canada is well positioned for future waves of the pandemic, for any future pandemics, and for future public-health challenges that share characteristics with this one.
