Confederation of Tomorrow
The Confederation of Tomorrow is a landmark annual survey of public opinion that explores the attitudes of Canadians towards the practice of federalism and their federal community. This snapshot is a unique resource for scholars and journalists interested in public opinion and federalism.
The 2021 Confederation of Tomorrow study consists of a survey of 5,814 adults, conducted online in the provinces between January 25 and February 17; and online and by telephone in the territories between January 25 and March 1. Survey results are weighted by region, gender, age, language, education, immigrant background and Indigenous identity to ensure they are representative of the country as a whole. When results are reported for the territories (individually or combined), these are weighted separately to ensure they are representative of that region.
