Survey of British Columbians: COVID-19 Variants, Vaccination, the Return to Normal

January 1, 1970

From February 19-21, 2021, on behalf of Postmedia, Leger conducted an online survey among British Columbians to explore their perspectives on various topics, including the COVID-19 variants, vaccination, the return to normal, and government action.

SOME OF THE KEY FINDINGS OF OUR SURVEY INCLUDE…

  • Four-in-five (79%) British Columbians are concerned about a COVID-19 variant (with respect to international travellers returning to Canada and bringing COVID-19 variants, and variants extending the pandemic).
  • Seven-in-ten (70%) expect to live with COVID-19 restrictions into the next year. 16% do not think the pandemic will ever be over.
  • Six-in-ten (58%) think a COVID-19 vaccination will become an annual medical routine, like a flu shot.
  • Support continues to drop for provincial and federal leaders month over month.

SURVEY METHODOLOGY

  • 1,001 residents of British Columbia aged 18 or older were surveyed online using Leger’s online panel, LEO, from February 19-21, 2021.
  • Using data from the 2016 Census, the results were weighted according to age, gender, and region in order to ensure a representative sample of the population in British Columbia.
  • No margin of error can be associated with a non-probability sample. However, for comparative purposes, a probability sample of 1,001 respondents would have a margin of error of ±3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
