This report presents the lived experience of the Canadian student population during the 2020-2021 academic year, and more specifically, their mental health, academic difficulties and counselling needs. By means of an online survey, student services professionals from 69 campuses were polled to share their observations on these elements.

In particular, the results show that, compared with the start of the pandemic, August 2021 sees a higher rate of pandemic-related fatigue among students. This fatigue takes the form of fatigue in the face of public health directives, and is strongly associated with anxiety, social isolation, financial stress and increased academic workload.
