This online survey of 1,007 adults was conducted May 4 - 5, 2020 by TransUnion in partnership with third-party research provider Qualtrics® Research-Services. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in Canada were surveyed using an online research panel method across a combination of computer, mobile, and tablet devices. Survey questions were administered in English or French. West, Central and Atlantic regions are represented in the study survey responses. To ensure general population sample representativeness across Canadian resident demographics, the survey included quotas to balance responses to the census statistics on the dimensions of age, gender, household income and region. These research results are unweighted and statistically significant at a 95% confidence level within ±3.09 percentage points based on calculated error margin.
