COVID-19 Bioethics Resources

On March 2, the Ontario Ministry of Health announced the creation of a Bioethics Table to support the province's novel coronavirus (COVID-19) health system response. The Bioethics Table is coordinated out of the University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics (JCB).


On this page, which will be updated regularly, we provide:

  • general bioethics resources for previous public health emergencies,
  • specific bioethics resources for COVID-19 preparedness planning and response, and
  • links to COVID-19 Information and Updates from Canadian government bodies and the World Health Organization.
