The Government SIG has prepared a collective list of resources offering information on COVID-19. Canadian sources include library guides, government, legislation, courts, legal and academic communities. 

Honourable mention goes to University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of Toronto,  and York for their LibGuide pathfinders.
