Whether we discuss transportation infrastructures, retirement income, floods, NAFTA’s renegotiation, Internet’s data confidentiality, access to health services, GMO utilization, food fraud, public-private partnership projects, school dropout, a great number of subjects are causes for worries.
What are the main concerns for Quebecers? What are the projects and issues perceived as the riskiest? What about the level of trust towards public authorities? These questions and many more have been submitted to Quebecers since 2011 by way of CIRANO’s Barometer which collates the results of the annual surveys submitted to a sample of 1000 people representing the Quebec population.
The two co-authors, Nathalie de Marcellis-Warrin, (President and chief executive officer at CIRANO and Full Professor at Polytechnique Montréal) and Ingrid Peignier (Partners Relations and Communications Director, CIRANO) will unveil the results of the 2018 edition of CIRANO’s Barometer during this conference. This lattest edition will present the population perceptions on 47 issues which are grouped under 10 major themes: natural risks, environmental risks and those associated with energetic ressources, industrial risks, risks associated with technological innovations, public health risks, risks associated with the health system, security risks, transportation infrastructure risks, economic and financial risks and, finally, risks associated with public projects management. Comparative analysis covering the last 7 years will also be presented.
