About seven in ten Canadians are concerned (score of 7-10 out of 10) (68%) about energy prices they will pay for things like heating and transportation over the next six months. Canadians are over seven times more likely to say they are very concerned (10 out of 10) (35%) rather than not concerned at all (0 out of 10) (4%). Just over one in two Canadians say governments in Canada do a very poor (30%) or poor (23%) job of ensuring energy is affordable as Canada works to meet its climate change targets, while one in three say they do an average job (33%).
Nanos conducted an RDD dual frame (land- and cell-lines) hybrid telephone and online random survey of 1,084 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between October 30th and November 4th, 2022 as part of an omnibus survey. The margin of error for a random survey of 1,084 Canadians is ±3.0 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
