COVID and Work in Canada – Half have seen change in the status of their employment

In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 1335 Canadian voters, more than eight in 10 (TOP2: 85%) say they’re concerned about COVID-19, with half (52%) saying they’re very concerned.

This is up considerably from the beginning of March, where just under two-thirds were concerned (TOP2: 62%, March 6) and only a quarter (25%, March 6) said they were very concerned.

About one-sixth (BTM2: 15%) said they are not concerned, with about one in 20 saying they are not concerned at all (6%).

The numbers of those who are not concerned are down since the beginning of March, where four in 10 (BTM2: 38%, March 6) said they were not concerned, and one-sixth (16%) saying they were not concerned at all.

Half said the pandemic has caused a change in their employment status

Half (49%) said the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a change in their employment status, while a similar proportion (51%) said it had not.

Amongst those who said they’ve seen a change in their employment status, one in 10 (11%) said they lost their job permanently.

Four in 10 (40%) said they lost their job temporarily.

One-fifth (18%) said they had their hours reduced.

One in twenty (4%) said they had their hours increased.

A quarter (27%) said the change in their employment did not fall into one of these categories.
