Articles and reports: 36-28-0001202200800001


As COVID-19 began to spread throughout Canada and the United States in early 2020, many employees were asked to work from home to help control the spread of the virus. COVID restrictions were more stringent in Canada than in the U.S., at least throughout 2021, and the degree to which Canadian and U.S. employees worked from home during the pandemic may have differed across countries. The goal of this paper is to fill this information gap and analyze the trends in work from home rates between the two countries from May 2020 to December 2021.
