Canada Day and the USA’s 4th of July Celebrations

June 30, 2024

As Canada Day and the Fourth of July are quickly approaching, Canadians and U.S. residents alike are preparing to celebrate. From June 22 to June 24, 2024, we surveyed Canadians and U.S. residents to find out their opinions on their annual celebration days.​

Some of the key highlights of our survey include…

  • About three-quarters of respondents (76%) feel proud to be Canadian, similar to the 78% of U.S. respondents who say they are proud to be American. In Canada, Quebecers (26%) and Conservative voters (28%) are more likely not to feel proud of being Canadians.   

  • When compared with last year, there is a significant 5-point decrease in the proportion of respondents who are proud to be Canadians.  

  • 41% of Canadians think that Canada is one of the best countries in the world to live in, while 50% of Americans feel the same way about the United States. However, it should be noted that one in five Canadians (20%) feel like Canada is ok, but it is not much better than many countries in the world. One-quarter of Canadians (25%) also think Canada has a lot of work to do in terms of living up to its reputation as the best country in the world.  

  • Around half of Canadians (46%) will celebrate Canada Day this year, a significant decrease of 8 points compared to last year. In comparison, more than two-thirds of Americans (68%) will celebrate the 4th of July this year.  

Methodology

This web survey about Canada Day was conducted from June 22 to June 24, 2024, with 1,607 Canadians and 1,003 U.S. residents, aged 18 or older. A margin of error cannot be associated with a non-probability sample in a panel survey.

For comparison purposes, a probability sample of this size yields a margin of error no greater than ±2.47%, (19 times out of 20) for the Canadian sample and ±3.1%, (19 times out of 20) for the U.S. sample.
