The weekend of July 1 2018, marks the 151st birthday of Canada and around the country there will be celebrations of Canada Day. Last year’s 150th anniversary of Confederation saw considerable commemorative activity around July 1 although participation in Quebec remained relatively lower profile than it elsewhere in the country. It’s difficult to assess the impact of the anniversary on attachment to Canada in Quebec or elsewhere though some surveys initially suggested a boost in such feeling. One year later the Association for Canadian Studies-QCGN-Léger Marketing survey points to a pattern of continued stability in levels of attachment to Canada on the part of Quebecers and a persistent gap between francophones and non-francophones in that regard.
The survey was conducted by the firm Léger Marketing for the Association for Canadian Studies and the Quebec Community Groups Network with a national sample 1226 Quebecers 871 francophones 275 anglophones and 106 allophones and was conducted between May 14th and may 17th 2018 via web panel with a probabilistic margin of error of 3.5 points 19 times out of 20.
