Most Canadians take water for granted. We think we have lots of it and it will always be there. So in 2008, RBC started polling Canadians about their attitudes towards water – to see if the serious water issues around the world were having an impact on how we use and think about water, and tracking whether our attitudes are changing.
Since 2008, RBC has made the poll results freely available to NGOs and other interested parties. They have encouraged the broad dissemination of the data and its findings because they want to help contribute to a healthy conversation about the value and vulnerability of water in Canada.
The 2016 RBC Canadian Water Attitudes Study is now available here:
