National Polls

Since 2002, LifeCanada has commissioned annual national omnibus polls with Environics. For the years 2002 – 2008, the opinion surveys focused on abortion exclusively. In the 2009 poll, questions on euthanasia were also included and in the 2010 poll, only euthanasia questions were asked.


The poll results have been a major source of research information for pro-life groups across Canada; have helped to build a profile of where the nation stands on key life issues; and have been an invaluable source to track trends. The polls are essential for building a demographic profile of target audiences for educational initiatives on life issues. The LifeCanada polls have been quoted extensively in the public media and by parliamentarians.
