About the National Citizens Inquiry

NCI is a citizen-led and citizen-funded initiative that is completely independent from government. During 24 days of hearings the NCI will hear from Canadians and experts and investigate governments’ COVID-19 policies in a fair and impartial manner. The NCI’s purpose is to listen, to learn, and to recommend. What went right? What went wrong? How can Canadians and our governments better react to national crises in the future in a manner that balances the interests of all members of our society?
