The voices of many Canadians have been heard throughout this pandemic: health professionals, scientists, politicians, media personalities and private citizens. Yet, there is one group whose stories have not been told, and whose perspectives have not been sought – our youth. This despite the fact that they will be forced to deal with the long-term and lasting consequences of the pandemic.
For the second year of In Their Own Words, this four-part multi-media series highlights how the pandemic has affected youth from various communities. Future installments of the series will be released on Dec. 27, 30 and Jan. 3.
