Waze Helps Canadian Drivers Find and Navigate to COVID-19 Testing Centres Through Partnership With Clinia

Waze, the platform bringing together communities on and off the road, today announced Canadians can search and find COVID-19 testing and screening locations within Waze, using data provided by Montreal-based Clinia Health Inc.

Waze and Clinia hope the data partnership will make it easier to find and navigate to testing locations.

Drawing upon information from public health departments, Clinia developed a directory of testing and screening locations across Canada. The database — with more than 340 data points — was integrated into Waze in July, with the data being refreshed a few times a week. This data contains information regarding testing and screening sites at hospitals and clinics, as well as mobile drive-through sites, ensuring Canadians are aware of options for COVID-19 testing.

Waze has seen an increase in drivers returning to the roads since March. Information on Canadian traffic patterns by city can be accessed here.
