Abstract: We study Canadians' concerns regarding the impact of COVID-19 on domestic violence and family stress. Our empirical analysis relies on a unique survey conducted online, the Canadian Perspective Survey Series, which allows us to investigate the determinants of concerns of family stress and domestic violence during the first COVID-19 lockdown. We find no evidence that changes in work arrangements are related to concerns of family stress and violence in the home due to confinement. In contrast, we find that the inability to meet financial obligations and concerns about maintaining social ties are significantly related to concerns of family stress and domestic violence.
