Canadian Climate Priorities 2021

Executive Summary

The survey was conducted with 2,000 Canadian residents from March 12 to 17, 2021. A random sample of panelists were invited to complete the survey from a set of partner panels based on the Lucid exchange platform. These partners are typically double opt-in survey panels, blended to manage out potential skews in the data from a single source.

The margin of error for a comparable probability-based random sample of the same size is +/-2.13%, 19 times out of 20.

The data were weighted according to census data to ensure that the sample matched Canada’s population according to age, gender, educational attainment, and region. Totals may not add up to 100 due to rounding.

This report was commissioned by Canada’s leading electricity associations:

  • Canadian Electricity Association (CEA)
  • Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA)
  • Canadian Renewable Energy Association
  • Waterpower Canada
  • Electricity Human Resources Canada
  • Marine Renewables Canada
