What is this major public opinion research study?

In March 2018, LMIC partnered with Forum Research to conduct a major public opinion research study to better understand the diverse LMI needs of Canadians, how they use LMI, and what they find to be lacking. In total, over 20,000 individuals and organizations from 9 user groups were surveyed. To read more about this study check out Emna’s blog LMI and you.

This dashboard presents the results from the first set of respondents including:

  • employed people
  • unemployed people
  • persons with disabilities
  • recent immigrants
  • recent graduates

More to come.

We will continue to phase in more information and new user groups to this page as they become available. Stay up-to-date on new user groups and exciting news from LMIC by signing up for our newsletter here.
