A majority of Canadians support (29%) or somewhat support (36%) building Canada’s first natural gas export facilities or building new export facilities so Canada can export low carbon hydrogen to other countries (28% support; 41% somewhat support).

Nanos conducted an online non-probability representative survey of 1,237 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between April 16th and 18th, 2024. The results were statistically checked and weighted by age and gender using the latest Census information and the sample is geographically stratified to be representative of Canada.

A margin of error cannot be calculated on a non-probability sample. For comparison purposes, a probability sample of 1,237 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.8 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The research was commissioned by the Macdonald-Laurier Institute (MLI) and the C.D. Howe Institute and was conducted by Nanos Research.

Additionally, four polling briefs have been prepared by Nanos Research and compiled into one report. Each brief contains findings from this survey, as well as data from previous research conducted by Nanos Research in collaboration with the University of Ottawa Positive Energy program.
