48% of Canadians have no plans to observe National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

In a recent survey conducted by Leger, a data analytics company, it was discovered that nearly half of Canadians, a significant 48%, do not plan to take any specific actions to observe this year’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

Furthermore, the survey, which involved over 1,600 Canadians, aimed to delve deeper into their awareness of Indigenous communities. 

Almost 48% of respondents expressed that they perceive “moderate progress” in Indigenous reconciliation since the completion of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s report, which was finalized eight years ago.

While 43% of participants admitted to feeling frustration over the perceived slow pace of reconciliation, a significant majority—65% of those surveyed—expressed a heightened understanding of why reconciliation is of paramount importance. 

These insights underscore the evolving perspectives and dynamics surrounding this crucial aspect of Canadian society.
