How do Canadians feel about the idea of investing in space?

  • Canadians support the idea of investing in space!
  • A major Ipsos survey conducted this summer found that roughly eight in 10 Canadians think the federal government should be supporting the development of the space sector; that if they heard the amount Canada is investing in space robotics was increasing they would think this is a good decision; and that success in space contributes a great deal to knowledge, innovation, and the competitiveness of Canada.
    • An even greater proportion agree (91%, including 52% who strongly agree) that maintaining leadership in space robotics, like the Canadarm, is important for Canada.
