About Focus Canada:
Focus Canada is an annual public opinion research program, launched in 1976. This year, the Environics Institute updated its research on Canadian attitudes toward their country’s relations with its international partners. This survey was conducted in partnership with the Faculty of Social Sciences’ IMPACT Project at the University of Ottawa and Century Initiative. This survey is based on telephone interviews conducted (via land line and cellphones) with 2,000 Canadians between September 8 and 23, 2020. A sample of this size drawn from the population produces results accurate to within +/-2.2 percentage points in 19 out of 20 samples.
About A Better Canada: Values and Priorities after COVID-19:
This survey was conducted online with 3,008 Canadians between August 17 and 24, 2020, in partnership with Vancity. (Margin of sampling error is not an applicable measure of accuracy with online surveys conducted with non-probability samples.)
