In March, we shared the “Measuring the Impact of COVID-19 on the IDM Industry” survey, which was funded by the Canadian Media Fund (CMF) and produced by Nordicity. The results from the questionnaire helped to substantiate Interactive Ontario’s recommendations to the government and was used to develop the emergency support measures for the industry.

It is imperative that we continue to measure the impact of COVID-19, so we are able to advocate for recovery and stimulus measures. To better understand and gauge the impact of this crisis, we are working with the CMF and Nordicity to monitor the resilience of our industry by way of a series of check-in surveys through the end of 2020.

Your answers will remain anonymous and confidential. Responses will be combined and will only be shared in an aggregated format with key-decision makers in government.

Please share this survey with your stakeholders, colleagues, partners and friends in the games/IDM industry. The more data from the businesses and freelancers of the industry, the stronger we’ll be in recommending stimulus and relief measures.

The survey questionnaire should take between 5-10 minutes to complete and will be closing on August 18, 2020.

Please share with us any information or feedback regarding advocacy by posting in IO’s Slack channel (Request Access) or emailing
