PWGSC's Public Opinion Research Directorate provides coordination and advisory services to Government of Canada organizations on public opinion research. The Directorate facilitates studies by guiding client departments throughout the entire process — from the research planning and procurement to completion of the final report — to ensure that objectives are met and that the research undertaken conforms with the legislative and policy requirements as well as Government of Canada and industry standards.
Read final reports of public opinion research studies on-line on the Library and Archives Canada Internet site.
The Communications Policy, as of August 2006, requires departments and agencies to provide written public opinion research reports to the Library of Parliament and to Library and Archives Canada (LAC) within six months of the completion of fieldwork, to facilitate access to the public and parliamentarians. Library and Archives Canada will post executive summaries of the reports on its Web site as well as contract information.
