In February and March 2021, an online survey of newcomers who arrived in Canada since 2018, and were living in Nova Scotia, was conducted to understand their well-being and access to integration services before and after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in March 2020. Some of these newcomers included clients of Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia (ISANS) and some were approached through personal contacts of the researcher. By the end of March, 118 responses had been received, with a completion rate of 48.6%. Some responses of the 118 responses were excluded as the respondents had arrived in Canada before 2018.
