Adapting to COVID-19: Private Business, Public Infrastructure and the New Normal

The COVID-19 pandemic is placing enormous economic pressure on Canadian workers and employers, and it is unclear what the long-term economic impacts of the crisis will be. This research will produce a model to describe ways in which employers and workers might adapt to, recover from and build long-term resilience to COVID-19 and other natural disasters that disrupt the economy. The research will provide Limestone Analytics an opportunity to deepen its partnerships in Eastern Ontario and establish itself as a reliable industry partner in policy development. This will enable Limestone to pursue new academic relationships with local subject area experts in the fields of crisis response, urban planning, workforce development, transport policy, spatial analysis, and economic recovery and development.
