Any Post-pandemic Recovery Plan Must Include Society’s Most Vulnerable

June 2, 2020

Last month, Daily Bread Food Bank’s Vice President of Research and Advocacy, Talia Bronstein, co-authored an opinion piece for TVO titled Any Post-pandemic Recovery Plan Must Include Society’s Most Vulnerable, along with Anjum Sultana, the national director of public policy & strategic communications at YWCA Canada and Garima Talwar Kapoor, the director of policy & research at Maytree. 

Their opinion is based on the idea that investments that improve economic and social conditions will help us prepare for future crises, so it is crucial that public-health evidence drives our recovery

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada was already experiencing a public-health crisis. More than 235,000 Canadians were homeless3.2 million were living in poverty, and 4.4 million were suffering from food insecurity.

The piece highlights how Canada’s response to COVID-19 has been shaped by public-health research, evidence, and leadership, and how the road to recovery should focus on what public-health guidance tells us.
