Each week, Leger will publish a survey conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), and published in The Canadian Press, to help governments, businesses and citizens better understand the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians in the face of the current health and economic crisis. This series of surveys is available on Leger’s website.

How was the research conducted?

This web survey was conducted from May 8 to May 10, 2020, with 1,526 Canadians and 1,004 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

What are the key findings of the research?

Leger’s latest survey about COVID-19, conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press, reveals that:

Although 96% of Canadians indicate they’ve kept a safe distance of 2 metres when in contact with people, about half (51%) report that someone outside their family has come within two metres of them.
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.
