Climate of Change 2017

Results and analysis of latest national Climate Survey

Partners of EcoAnalytics now have access to the full results and trenchant analysis of our second Climate of Change Survey, fielded in October 2017. The survey posed 40 questions on climate and energy issues to a representative sample of 1,200 Canadians, adding to a longitudinal set of data reaching back to 2011.

The full results are laid out in the Climate of Change Survey Cross-tab Results Report, Nov. 2017. Each page presents cross-tabulated results for a different question, with demographic segmentation by gender, age, language, education level, region and voting preference.

Analysis of the results includes two detailed reports: Dr. Erick Lachapelle's Climate of Change Survey 2017 Research Note: Building support among Canadians for carbon pricing and his Climate of Change 2017 Analytical Report: Engaging the Five Canadas of Climate Change.

Climate of Change: Analysis of a national survey of Canadian opinions about climate and energy issues, Dec. 2016, by Erick Lachapelle, Valérie-Anne Mahéo, PhD and Professor Richard Nadeau, Université de Montréal

Both analytical documents show where Canadians stand on critical aspects of the issues and offer fresh and practical recommendations for program managers and other communicators working to engage key segments of the population in addressing climate change.

What do Canadians now think about carbon pricing? How do attitudes on this controversial topic vary among key audiences in six regions: BC, AB, SK/MB, ON, QC and the Atlantic provinces.  How have Canadians perceptions of the risks posed by climate change changed? Who do they hold financially responsible? What messages and images are most likely to mobilize concerned Canadians to take action, according to the latest data?  These are some of the questions addressed in these highly topical reports.
