On the behalf of The Canadian Press, Leger surveyed Canadians about their voting intentions. 


This poll comes after the election of Pierre Poilievre as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

  • If a federal election were held today, 34% of decided Canadian voters would vote for Pierre Poilievre’s Conservative Party of Canada, 28% would vote Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party of Canada, 23% would vote for Jagmeet Singh’s New Democratic Party of Canada, 8% would vote for Yves-François Blanchet’s Bloc Québécois, 3% would vote for Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party of Canada, 3% would vote for Amita Kuttner’s Green Party of Canada, and 1% would vote for another party.
  • When we asked Canadians which federal party leader would make the best prime minister of Canada… 
    • 24% said Justin Trudeau 
    • 21% said Pierre Poilievre 
    • 17% said Jagmeet Singh 
    • 3% said Maxime Bernier 
    • 1% said Amita Kuttner 


  • This web survey was conducted from September 16 to 18, 2022, among 1,522 Canadians over the age of 18, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.  
  • A margin of error cannot be associated with a non-probability sample in a panel survey. For comparison purposes, a probability sample of 1,522 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.51%, 19 times out of 20.
