Canadians are more likely to have negative rather than positive views on relations between the federal government and the provincial governments over the past year, with positive views nearing an all-time low. About one in three say relations have not improved (39%) or somewhat not improved (26%) compared to one in ten who say they have improved (one per cent) or somewhat improved (nine per cent).

The proportion of Canadians who say Canada’s international reputation has not improved is at an eight-year high (30%, the largest proportion since 35% in 2014 and 45% in 2013), with four times as many Canadians saying it has not improved rather than improved (seven per cent) in the past year.

Nanos conducted an RDD dual frame (land-and cell-lines) hybrid telephone and online random survey of 1,021 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between December 19th to 22nd, 2022 as part of an omnibus survey. The margin of error for a random survey of 1,021 Canadians is ±3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. The research was conducted by Nanos Research.
