Project: COVID-19 Economic recovery scenarios for Eastern Ontario

In spring of 2020, Limestone Analytics and the Eastern Ontario Leadership Council (EOLC) entered into an agreement to explore the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Eastern Ontario region. Through this work, Limestone conducted a literature review and designed a methodology for quantifying the economic impacts of the pandemic. 

Following this first activity, Limestone and EOLC initiated a second project in which Limestone is applying its STUDIO model to estimate the economic effects of COVID-19 and policy shutdowns at the Census Division level throughout Eastern Ontario. The work includes:

  • Configuring the STUDIO model for Eastern Ontario under several different scenarios.
  • Presenting the results for Eastern Ontario in the Economic Impact Explorer, an online dashboard developed through a partnership between Limestone and Localintel.
  • Conducting an analysis of the economic resilience of Census Divisions in Eastern Ontario.
