Asking Canadians

KPMG surveyed 1,000 Canadians aged 18+ from March 17 to 20, 2021 to discern changes in the public's confidence in and attitudes toward the economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This follows a survey of over 4,000 Canadians in January 2021 examining public sentiment on the health and economic impacts of COVID-19. For each study, KPMG leveraged the AskingCanadians panel by Delvinia through its methodify online research automation platform.

The poll provided a glimpse of what Canadians may hope to see in the upcoming Federal budget, including the adoption of a 'Canada-first' strategy to economic recovery that establishes incentives to 'buy Canadian.' Other key findings include:
