Sixty-six percent (66%) of Canadian respondents say our government should do more to help refugees fleeing war or persecution. Younger Canadians are much more likely to think that their government should do more to help refugees (76% agree). This is the arresting result of an international survey, the Canadian portion of which was conducted from March 7 to 24, 2016, only days after the Government of Canada met its objective to welcome 25,000 Syrian refugees between November 2015 and the end of February 2016. The survey was carried out by internationally renowned strategy consultancy GlobeScan and polled more than 27,000 people in 27 countries.
Has Canada done enough?
