Toronto, ON — Ipsos and Global News have explored Canadians’ attitudes towards healthcare, including an assessment of their own health (physical and mental), the impact of work and life on their health, and their degree of comfort talking about health-related issues with their employer. Canadians attitudes towards diets and weight-loss was also explored. The data was used in a week-long series by Global News, exploring the state of Canadians’ health.

About the Study

These are findings of an Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Global News. For this survey, a sample of 1,001 Canadians from the Ipsos I-Say panel was interviewed from August 20 to 23, 2018. Quotas and weighting were employed to ensure that the sample’s composition reflects the overall population according to census information. The precision of online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the results are accurate to within ±3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, of what the results would have been had all Canadian adults been polled. Credibility intervals are wider among subsets of the population.
