Resentment in the Canadian Federation

Charles Breton, Olivier Jacques and Andrew Parkin October 18, 2022

Canadians in every province are resentful about their province’s place in the federation, but resentment runs higher in some provinces than others.

These are the findings of a new Resentment Index that we created using questions from the Confederation of Tomorrow 2022 survey. The results can help us better understand the politics of resentment that seem to course through the federation.
