ScienceUpFirst is a national initiative that works with a collective of independent scientists, researchers, health care experts and science communicators. We share the best available science in creative ways to stop the spread of misinformation.

Right now, we’re focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines.

Join the movement:

  • Post with the hashtags #ScienceUpFirst and #LaSciencedAbord.
  • Share our expert-vetted posts on social media, and download them from our Share page.
  • Be a champion for good science in your own networks!

Other ways to get involved:

#TakeScience Campaign:

  • #TakeScience into Fall will address the latest Canadian COVID-19 questions as the seasons change.
  • We are encouraging Canadians to put science up first when they go back to the activities they love. We are asking what people learned from the last year and a half, and sharing that knowledge with others.

Science Up First is for everyone. All you need to participate is a social media account.
