Confederation of Tomorrow

Updated May 24, 2024 Published September 10, 2020

The Confederation of Tomorrow is an annual survey of public opinion exploring the views of Canadians towards the future of the federation and their political communities. This survey serves as an important resource to academics, journalists, and researchers seeking public opinion data on federalism.

The 2024 study consists of a survey of 6,036 adults, conducted between January 13 and April 13, 2024 (82% of the responses were collected between January 17 and February 1); 94% of the responses were collected online. The remaining responses were collected by telephone from respondents living in the North or on First Nations reserves.
