We celebrated our 20th anniversary a year late (due to COVID) and hosted a special three day event at our offices in Ottawa, ON. The event kicked off with a gala dinner on Thursday, November 11 at the Westin Ottawa where we debuted never-before-seen polling data on young leaders’ perspectives on the future of Canada. The festivities continued on Friday and Saturday where we enjoyed thoughtful panel discussions on a variety of current research topics.

We released an exciting research project

We created the largest ever polling research project comparing the perspectives of Canadian leaders under 40 with those over 40, in partnership with the Angus Reid Institute. We presented the data at our anniversary gala and held a panel discussion with Cardus staff and Shachi Kurl, President of the Angus Reid Institute, providing a variety of perspectives.
