Canadians are nearly twice as likely to report being not comfortable (53%) or somewhat not comfortable (11%) with schools not notifying parents when their child wants to go by a new preferred name or pronoun than to report being  comfortable (21%) or somewhat comfortable (12%) with this.

Nanos conducted an RDD dual frame (land- and cell-lines) hybrid telephone and online random survey of 1,071 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between February 28th and March 2nd, 2024 as part of an omnibus survey. Participants were randomly recruited by telephone using live agents and administered a survey online.

The margin of error for this survey is ±3.0 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

This study was commissioned by CTV News and the research was conducted by Nanos Research.
