Pilot Study on Everyday Well-being

Statistics Canada is conducting the Pilot Study on Everyday Well-being, in collaboration with Canada Council for the Arts and Canadian Heritage. The survey runs from January 10, 2021 to March 31, 2022. This project will use a new mobile-phone application called Vitali-T-Stat to test a new way of collecting data.

The goal of this survey is to gain a better understanding of the impact of certain activities, such as arts and cultural activities, that can influence the day-to-day changes in emotional moods and mental states of participants. These types of data are especially important at a time when COVID-19 has had an impact on the physical and emotional well-being of many Canadians.

These data could be used to better understand the factors that can promote emotional and mental resilience, which could result in the development of programs and services that improve the quality of life of all Canadians.
