The Canadian Attitudes Towards Issues of Food Access, Food Insecurity, and Health report is based on 1,002 interviews of Canadian adults, examining perceptions of food insecurity in Canada and local communities. The full report is free of charge and may be downloaded by clicking the links at the bottom.
These are some of the findings of an Ipsos poll conducted between March 29 and April 3, 2017 on behalf of Community Food Centres Canada. For this survey, a sample of 1,002 Canadians from Ipsos' online panel was interviewed online. Weighting was then employed to balance demographics to ensure that the sample's composition reflects that of the adult population according to Census data and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. The precision of Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the poll is accurate to within +/- 3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, had all Canadian adults been polled. The credibility interval will be wider among subsets of the population. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error.
