Project Pandemic: Reporting on COVID-19 in Canada
Project Pandemic was a collaborative mapping effort mobilizing journalists across the country. It was led by the Institute for Investigative Journalism at Montreal’s Concordia University and employed reporters from journalism schools across Canada along with traditional news media organizations such as CTV News. The goal was to collect data about the coronavirus pandemic and to use mapping and other analysis tools to allow a clearer picture of where the COVID-19 disease has spread and to analyze the impact on Canadians.
The maps below covered cases in each health-care region across every province, as well as hospitalization numbers and reports on Indigenous lands. They were drawn from publicly reported data plus information uploaded by journalists and trusted members of the public.
"Project Pandemic: Canada Reports on COVID-19" was a national collaboration bringing together journalists and journalism students from news organizations and universities across Canada to gather information as a public service.
The consortium drew on data gathered by governmental health authorities, journalists and the nonprofit platform Flatten.ca. This project was co-ordinated by Concordia University’s Institute for Investigative Journalism, with the support of the Canadian Association of Journalists.
