The 23-page report includes statistics and testimonials from the two hundred youth surveyed throughout the period of June 2020 to January 2021. Highlights include youth insights from 2020 capturing recurring themes of struggle, perspectives on the disproportionate impact of the pandemic from young people who are Black, Indigenous and People of Colour, realities for communities with external challenges, and an Interview with Dr. Imogen Coe, academic leader and equity, diversity & inclusion advocate who speaks to the experience of youth from a post-secondary point of view.

The report culminates in meaningful calls to action for sectors of government, industry and education to create relevant support and youth engagement opportunities from the point of view of diverse young people in Canada.
