As part of our goal to provide you with helpful information throughout these difficult times, we’re sharing the results of our most recent survey on COVID-19 (the coronavirus), conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press.

Our May 12, 2020 edition also reveals that…

  • 57% of Canadians are stressed about leaving their house and being in public. Americans (64%) are more stressed about this than Canadians.
  • Satisfaction with the provincial governments’ responses remains high, but is declining.
  • 39% of Canadians and 55% of Americans are not following all of the guidelines. The proportion of Canadians not following all of them has been trending upward.
