Why are we sharing our Stories?

Covid-19 is a novel virus and the full impact of Long Covid sequela has yet to be acknowledged by the Canadian government and Public Health officers. Long Covid in Canada is affecting and will continue to affect our citizen’s and our society at large.

According to the latest research, 1/3 of every daily total Covid -19 case will go on to develop Long Covid.

Canadian policymakers and public health officials need to start taking Long Covid seriously, investing in research, identifying therapies, and providing income supports.

We raise awareness, offering understanding, attention, and hope to all affected by Long Covid.
