Canadian Reconciliation Barometer finds moderate change in attitudes toward reconciliation


The Canadian Reconciliation Barometer has released its second year of results, showcasing how attitudes on reconciliation have evolved over the 2021-2022 period. The barometer measures 13 indicators of progress pertaining to reconciliation by surveying Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians. It is led by researchers from the University of Manitoba, the University of Victoria, Toronto Metropolitan University, Probe Research Inc and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. The report suggests that in 2022, more respondents were aware of Residential Schools and their harms than in 2021. Non-Indigenous respondents’ views also became slightly more aligned with Indigenous respondents’ views over this time period, especially in the areas of reconciling with nature. With these improvements in mind, the report concludes that there is still “a lot of work ahead of us.”
