Fewer than half of Canadians have Confidence in the Media

Based on the 2013 General Social Survey on Social Identity, conducted by Statistics Canada, fewer than half of Canadians expressed confidence in the media (40%) while three in four Canadians (76%) expressed confidence in the police, making it the institution with the highest level of public confidence. Next highest were the school system (61%), banks (59%), and the justice system and courts (57%).

 

Fewer than half of Canadians expressed confidence in the Federal Parliament (38%) and in major corporations (30%).

Overall confidence in institutions was highest among visible minorities and immigrants, particularly among those who immigrated to Canada since 2000.

Aboriginal people were less likely than non-Aboriginal people to have high levels of confidence in institutions, though they were equally as likely to say that they had a great deal or some confidence in banks and major corporations.
