After months of social distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are facing what some are calling a “loneliness pandemic.” Social isolation is increasingly being recognized as a public health issue in Canada. 

This webinar discussion featured Lisa Richmond from Cardus, Sonia Hsiung from Alliance for Healthier Communities and Dr. Trevor Hancock in a discussion about the state of loneliness and social isolation in Canada. They also explored innovative models for fostering community connection such as social prescribing and nature prescribing.
