COVID-19 Survey – May 20, 2020

Did you know that:

  • 47% of Canadians think the borders with the United States should not be reopened before the end of the year.
  • 60% of Canadians think their provincial government should maintain the pace at which it is relaxing social distancing/self-isolation measures.
  • 53% of Canadians are afraid of contracting COVID-19; however, this proportion continues to trend downward.
  • Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, 13% of Canadians indicate their mental health has been bad, and 2% indicate it has been very bad.

These are some of the findings of Leger’s latest survey, conducted May 15-17, 2020 among 1,513 Canadians and 1,001 Americans, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

Each week, Leger will publish a survey conducted in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and published in The Canadian Press to help governments, businesses and citizens better understand the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians in the face of the current health and economic crisis. This series of surveys will be available on Leger’s website.
