The Canadian National Vaccine Safety (CANVAS) Network is a national platform that monitors vaccine safety after vaccines are approved for use. We are monitoring the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines in Canada and we need YOUR help.

Using a web-based survey we will collect information about whether or not health events occur after receiving COVID-19 vaccines. We will also collect health events from people who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine.

How to Enrol

If you want to participate, please register for the study by selecting the button to the right that applies to you (whether you have received a COVID-19 vaccine or you have not). If you haven’t received the vaccine, you can still participate in the non-vaccinated (control) survey. If you join under the non-vaccinated group, you may later re-join the vaccinated group once you’ve received the vaccine. 

You will then be directed to select your Province of residence and you will need to provide your first name, email address and telephone number. If you have been vaccinated we will need to know your vaccination date and vaccine product.

If you were vaccinated you need to enroll within 7 days of getting your vaccine.

Have You Received the COVID-19 Vaccine?

Scientists who are mounting the largest independent study of vaccine safety in Canadian history are seeking the participation of hundreds of thousands of people across the country – including those who have not yet been vaccinated for COVID-19 – to get the information they need.

The results of the study, to be released in regular instalments over the coming months, are intended to yield a fine-grained look at adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines. They may also be a reassuring source of information for those who feel that they don’t yet know enough to decide whether to be vaccinated.
