Portraits 2017


Portraits 2017

The Portraits 2017 series analyzes survey data from a comprehensive study of public opinion in Ontario and Quebec. The survey focused on a wide range of subjects, including federalism, the economy, social programs, international trade, immigration and diversity, and relations with Indigenous peoples. The data provides valuable new evidence about whether and how citizens’ attitudes towards one another, to the federation and to Canada are evolving at a time of considerable change and uncertainty in the wider global political context.

The Portraits 2017 survey was conducted with support from Alain-G. Gagnon, holder of the Canada Research Chair in Quebec and Canadian Studies and director at the Centre d’analyse politique: Constitution et Fédéralisme, based at UQAM.
