Community groups in Montreal are urging all levels of government to collect and publicize data on the disproportionate effects of the pandemic on the city's racialized and low-income populations. From CBC: Nearly a year after the pandemic descended on Canada, community groups in Montreal are still pressing all levels of government to collect and publicize data on how COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting racialized minorities and low-income residents in the city. "Montreal as a city needs this information so that we can work together to send resources where they are most needed," said Dr. Jill Hanley, a social work professor at McGill University, who conducted her own study last year on the impact of COVID-19 on ethnocultural communities in Montreal. It found that multiethnic, low-income neighbourhoods were particularly vulnerable. At a virtual news conference Tuesday, Hanley said that while researchers have been able to gather some information themselves, public health officials would be able to go deeper and allow policy makers to take more targeted steps at addressing the problem. Marvin Rotrand, an independent councillor at Montreal city hall, brought forward a motion to urge authorities "to collect and report disaggregated data including race, income, disability and other social determinants of health that will inform evidence-based health-care and social program interventions."
