Social Isolation & the Lessons of Lockdown

Prior to March 2020, many Canadians were reporting feelings of disconnectedness and loneliness. Following eight months of social distancing measures, unprecedented numbers of Canadians are now experiencing both physical and social isolation from their colleagues, family, and communities. Join us on Thursday, December 3rd as Milton Friesen guides us through the data and explores the possibilities for a way forward. This Zoom event will include a panel discussion involving Vanessa Herrick of Seniors Action Quebec, Talitha Lemoine of Catholic Campus Outreach and Cathie Macaulay of Pastoral Home Care, Archdiocese of Montreal.

Milton Friesen is the General Manager of CitiIQ, an organization which measures the health and well-being of cities. He has served a three-year term as an elected municipal councillor and has spent more than 12 years working in public policy and research projects related to city planning.

This event will take place via Zoom.  Please click here to register.
