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 – JULY 28, 2020
Conducted using our representative LEO (Leger Opinion) panel, in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), and published in The Canadian Press.
  • 57% of Canadians and 51% of Americans think that the COVID-19 vaccine should be mandatory for all when it becomes available.
  • 70% of Canadians and 60% of Americans intend to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available.
IN THE NEWS: BACK TO SCHOOL
(ASKED TO CANADIANS/AMERICANS WITH SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN)
  • If school resumes and there is some form of in-classroom instruction, 59% of Canadians and 41% of Americans state they will send their children back to school in the fall.
  • If a student or teacher in their child’s class tested positive for COVID-19, 45% of Canadians would follow the school’s advice in terms of next steps, while 43% of Americans would keep their child at home indefinitely.
