A poll released Monday on the 10th anniversary of Canada’s apology for residential schools, shows Canadians have strong and divided feelings about many areas including treaties, government attention to Indigenous issues, and funding of them.
Angus Reid surveyed 2,500 people and found more people believe Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is paying “too much” attention to Indigenous issues, rather than “too little”.
And while most Canadians agree that the attention and money currently being devoted to Indigenous issues in Canada is not particularly effective, they vary wildly in their perspectives about how to change this status quo.
More Key Findings:
Despite the deep divides in some areas, 61 per cent of respondents say they have optimism about the future of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians.
