Remembering Canadians who have died from COVID-19
The first person in Canada contracted COVID-19 in January, but it wasn't until March that the first Canadian died from the disease.
The numbers have grown in Canada and around the world since then, each death an anonymous statistic announced in a growing daily tally.
While the loss is real for those who have lost loved ones to the disease, it is harder to fathom for Canadians not directly touched by the tragedy.
However, each statistic represents a Canadian with their own story.
These are some of the victims’ stories, as told to CTV News by family members and loved ones.
Did one of your loved ones die of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus? Help us share your memories of them, along with a favourite photo of them, to paint a fuller picture of some of the Canadian lives lost as a result of the pandemic.
