We are doing a research project to understand the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of Yukon women.
We're looking for feedback from women in the Yukon who are 19 years of age and older.
Interviews usually take between 60 and 90 minutes and can be done over the phone, by Zoom, or in-person in Whitehorse, and participants are offered a $50 honorarium for their time.
People will be asked how the pandemic has impacted things like paid work and unpaid care work, whether the pandemic changed how much time women spent taking care of children and sick or elderly people, and how the pandemic affected womens’ well-being.
For more information or to participate, please contact Ashley at 867-689-5257 or email@example.com.

The project takes a livelihood view of the economy, recognizing that people meet their needs through combinations of market and non-market work (unpaid care work, traditional food collection, sharing, and exchange), and access to publicly provided services (Chambers and Conroy, 1991; Elson, 2010). Going beyond income, well-being captures physical, mental, and emotional well-being, physical and emotional safety, and ability to engage in cultural ceremony. The specific impacts of the pandemic on Yukon women’s livelihoods and well-being may differ from impacts experienced in other parts of Canada, given the Yukon’s unique economic and demographic features.
