National Survey Results: Canadians concerned about the health of women and children amid COVID-19 pandemic

On July 22, 2020, CanWaCH invited those working in international development to a timely update on activities to further engage with Canadians on Canada’s leading role in global health. 

During this webinar, CanWaCH was joined by David Coletto, Chief Executive Officer of Abacus Data, to share the results of recent public opinion polling. 

The poll, conducted for CanWaCH by Abacus Data, found that while Canadians want Canada to play a role in foreign aid, they also have questions about support for Official Development Assistance (ODA) in comparison to crisis-based funding. 

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the top global concern of Canadians remains infectious disease. Additionally, well over half of Canadians are also concerned about global issues of gender inequality (67%) and the health of women and children (81%).
