Hello,

Every week, we survey Canadians and Americans to explore their perspectives on COVID-19 and other current events. To help you stay up to date, we are sharing the results of our latest survey.

COVID-19 SURVEY RESULTS – JUNE 23, 2020
Conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press.
  • Two-thirds (66%) of Canadians and Americans believe that current physical distancing measures should remain at 2 meters (6 feet).
  • But even if the 2-meter (6-foot) social distancing rule was reduced to 1 meter (3 feet), four-in-ten (40%) Canadians and Americans would be comfortable dining in a restaurant.
IN THE NEWS: BUYING CANADIAN
  • 74% of Canadians say they often purchase products or services that originate in Canada from a Canadian company. Not only does it help the Canadian economy and support Canadian jobs, say most Canadians, but the products and services are often of higher quality.
  • Nearly six-in-ten Canadians (56%) believe they will try to buy Canadian goods and services more often in the future.
