Questions will be asked about the facility, its revenues and expenses, personnel and hours worked, the type of services offered on-site, the number of beds and the number of residents by their age and gender. Questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic will cover infection prevention and control, changes made to the facility, the confirmed number of COVID-19 cases, and the proportion of residents and employees fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Data collected from businesses are aggregated with information from other sources to produce official estimates of national and provincial economic production for this industry. This survey data will be used to standardize national, provincial, and regional statistics on nursing and residential care facilities in Canada. This will allow governments and researchers to examine the correlation between facility operations and personnel, health outcomes of residents, and system-level performance during pandemics or other emergencies.
