The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada invites you to the launch of our 2020 National Opinion Poll: Canadian Views on Asia survey results on November 25, 2020.
2020 has delivered significant challenges to the entire world, including Canada. In this year’s National Opinion Poll, APF Canada has captured Canadian opinions on timely and relevant issues in contemporary Canada-Asia relations, including:
• Ottawa’s approach to foreign policy
• Canada’s relationships with the United States and China
• International trade and investment
• Anti-Asian racism
• Powerhouse economies such as India, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan
• Education and the media
This year’s NOP provides a comprehensive overview of Canadians’ sentiments toward the Asia Pacific, particularly in light of COVID-19. Our survey findings indicate that even though Canadians are feeling less connected to the Asia Pacific, the economic importance of Asian countries is well-received and understood.
Our 2020 NOP underscores Canadians’ recognition of the positive impacts of immigration from Asia on the Canadian economy and the negative impacts of anti-Asian racism. It also tracks deteriorating Canadian opinions toward China and the U.S., which our polling indicates are at all-time lows. Central to this year’s takeaways is the need for Canada to stand up to China to protect key national values and bring our detained Canadians back home.
Please join APF Canada’s President and CEO, Stewart Beck, Vice-President, Research, Dr. Jeffrey Reeves, Program Manager, Perspectives Asia, Dr. Sreyoshi Dey, and Post-Graduate Research Fellow, Hugo Roy for the virtual launch of this major survey of Canadian attitudes towards Asia in a time of global disruption.
