  • A web survey was conducted among 1,554 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, via Leger’s online panel, LEO.
  • The data was collected from January 20 to 22, 2023.
  • As a non-probability online survey, a margin of error is technically not reported. If the data were collected through a probability sample, the margin of error would be ±2.5%, 19 times out of 20.
  • Using data from the 2021 census, the results were weighted according to age, gender and region within Canada, as well as by education and presence of children in the household in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.
