How do Canadians as individuals relate to the broader world? What do they see as their country’s current place in a global affairs, and how might this be realized?

Canada is a country with strong international connections. Most of the population is comprised of people with roots in other countries. Today Canada welcomes roughly 300,000 immigrants each year from across the globe, most of whom settle in and become citizens while simultaneously maintaining strong connections with their originating communities. The country’s prosperity depends in large part on trade with other countries and maintaining a positive trade balance. Canadians are ever mindful of their much bigger neighbour to the south, with which they share much in common, but also see as distinctly different.

In 2008, the Canada’s World Survey posed the question, “How do Canadians as individuals relate to the broader world?”. It was the first ever survey to ask Canadians how they saw their place in the world, and that of their country. A decade later, we conducted a second Canada’s World Survey to engage Canadians and determine how public attitudes, priorities and actions have evolved over time while addressing emerging global issues.

Please join us for a public launch of the Canada’s World Survey 2018. The evening will feature an overview of the study findings, followed by a moderated discussion among a panel of experts.

Full program to follow.
Seating is limited. Cash bar will be available after the panel.

This study was conducted by the Environics Institute, in partnership with SFU Public Square at Simon Fraser University, the Canadian International Council, and the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History.
