National Youth Survey Report

Introduction

The National Youth Survey was commissioned by Elections Canada to better understand the reasons why youth may or may not participate in the electoral process. The survey, which was conducted immediately following the May 2011 federal general election, included a national random sample of 1,372 youth and young adults aged 18 to 34 years, and an additional non-random sample of 1,293 youth from the following subgroups: Aboriginal youth, ethnocultural youth, youth in rural areas, youth with disabilities and unemployed youth not in school. With a total sample of 2,665 young Canadians, the study provides a unique portrait of youth voting behaviour in Canada and offers important recommendations to increase youth participation in the electoral process. The appendixes to the study will be available on this web page at a later date.
