Recov­er­ing col­lec­tive­ly: the case of Que­bec City Recovering collectively: the case of Quebec City

To bet­ter recov­er from a cri­sis, cities must deploy excep­tion­al mea­sures, adopt col­lec­tive approach­es, break down inter­nal silos and strength­en their coor­di­na­tion capac­i­ties. But how are these prac­tices imple­ment­ed and how can they be used to address oth­er col­lec­tive chal­lenges that com­mu­ni­ties face? To answer these ques­tions, the Cité-ID has devel­oped a research project in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the City of Que­bec. The analy­sis will focus on inter­nal and exter­nal recov­ery process­es and practices...

The response of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies to COVID-19 The response of digital technologies to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pan­dem­ic has accel­er­at­ed the dig­i­tal shift in pub­lic health infor­ma­tion sys­tems around the world. How­ev­er, at the start of the pan­dem­ic, Quebec’s pub­lic health infor­ma­tion sys­tems were not pre­pared to respond to a cri­sis like this one. Prob­lems relat­ed to the inte­gra­tion and inter­op­er­abil­i­ty of sys­tems were high­light­ed. The research car­ried out by Cité-ID, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with OBVIA, on the use of dig­i­tal tools by pub­lic health in Que­bec and by region­al offices has made it possibl...

Social Links and Resilience to COVID-19 Social Links and Resilience to COVID-19

Sev­er­al stud­ies have shown that indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive resilience fol­low­ing a cri­sis depends to a large extent on the and the qual­i­ty of indi­vid­u­als’ social ties. While social bonds have been weak­ened and trans­formed by the pan­dem­ic, how is it pos­si­ble to pre­serve and strength­en? After an analy­sis of the effects of the pan­dem­ic on social ties in the six bor­oughs of Mon­tréal, researchers from Cité-ID pro­posed to be more con­cerned with the qual­i­ty of social ties in the process of collective ...
