high public demand for coronavirus data from the public, senior stakeholders and decision-makers.

Data must be presented in a way that can be updated, due to the responsive and agile nature of covid data. This requires a streamlined process. Integrating data and dashboards in a useable product with a dynamic data approach.

Data objectives :

  • Provide National Leadership
  • Data Driven Decision Making
  • Public trust through openness, transparency and design consistency
  • Promote good public health
  • Combat misinformation

Multiple platforms of use (Canada.ca, public health infobase, social media)

A good working example would be vaccination coverage page. The design evolved over time to ensure a more efficient publication of data, while also allowing people to access historical covid data through the archive tab.

DTO provided feedback widget allowing users to provide feedback on the covid data to ensure it continues to make sense

Data trends are also posted for public consumption
