Over Half of Canadian Businesses Favour Tightening Public Health Restrictions

TORONTO, November 4, 2020

The latest findings from The Business Monitor, which surveyed of over 1,000 Canadian managers and executives, show surprising support for tightening public health restrictions.

Canadian business leaders favour tightening public health restrictions over easing them by a 2 to 1 ratio.

Ontario businesses are most strongly in favour of tightening restrictions, while Alberta is the only province with a plurality that favours eased restrictions.

The overall level of support for tightening restrictions revealed by the survey is remarkable given the survey also shows that over two-thirds of Canadian businesses have been negatively affected by the COVID pandemic.
