This information is based on data our provincial and territorial partners published on cases, deaths, and testing daily, and are current as of the day they are published. Today’s numbers are current as of . For the most up to date data for any province, territory or city, please visit their website. The number of cases or deaths reported on previous days may differ slightly from those on the provincial and territorial websites as these websites may update historic case and death counts as new information becomes available.

* The new cases, deaths and tests reflect the difference between a province or territory's current report and their last report. Some provinces and territories do not update daily.

N/A means that no daily update was provided by the province or territory.

Variants of Concern (VOC) in Canada

All viruses, including COVID-19, change, or mutate, over time. Not all mutations are of concern. However, some changes result in variants of concern (VOC). A VOC has changes that are significant to public health. For example, they might:

We update VOC information daily from Sunday to Thursday at 7:00 PM EST, using publicly reported information fro the provinces and territories.

Note: The table reports publicly available information from the provinces and territories. In case of discrepancies, the provincial or territorial data should be considered current and correct.


Detailed case information

The tables and figures below reflect detailed case information provided to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) by health authorities in the provinces and territories. This data is updated every week. It may change as we get more information about cases.

Epidemic curve

As of May 7, 2021, 9 am EST, PHAC has received detailed case report data on cases. Both exposure and symptom onset date were available for (%) casesFootnote 1.

The shaded area on the far right of Figure 2 represents lag time. This is the period of time (1 to 2 weeks) before the latest cases are reported to PHAC. This delay is a result of the time required to seek health care, get tested and receive results. It also takes time for public health authorities to gather information on cases. We update this information as it becomes available.

This figure may underestimate the total number of cases among returning travelers. Exposure history is not available for all cases and jurisdictions have not all consistently reported exposure history to PHAC throughout the pandemic.
