Over half of Canadian Business leaders support increased long-term public funding for health care, social housing and basic income

TORONTO, May 28, 2020

The latest findings from the Modus Business Monitor survey of over 950 Canadian managers and executives shows remarkable support for expanding long-term public funding for social programs.

Two-thirds support increases to health care public funding, while 55% support expanded funding for both social housing and basic income.

  • These findings are consistent across small, medium, and large businesses and fairly consistent regionally with some notable exceptions.
  • Support for increased long-term public funding for health care (48%) and basic income (40%) is lower in Alberta and, to a lesser extent, the Prairies.
