In our first issue following the outbreak of COVD-19 in Canada, Monitor contributors assess the federal and provincial government responses to date and propose how we might use this moment of government activism to fix the gross inequalities in our society—by improving social programs such as employment insurance, income assistance and our health care system, for example. 

Our cover story centres Canada's decades-old housing affordability crisis, which will compound hardship for millions of people who are out of a job, or on drastically lower hours or pay, during the "Great Lockdown" of 2020. To find all of the CCPA's work on Canada's pandemic response, see our Behind the Numbers blog.

Here's a sample of what you'll find in this issue.
