Mr. Neuman explained that Muslims were seen as the new “other” and not studied very in depth, though they are an important and growing part of Canadian population. This study functions as a “powerful vehicle to amplify voices” and give compelling imperial data in support of these voices.
Environics had done a survey in 2006, and the survey presented today is the followup. It took six and a half years to raise the funds for the 2016 survey, Mr. Neuman said. This included support from the Olive Tree Foundation, the Tessellate Institute, the Inspirit Foundation, and the Canadian Race Relations Foundations. The study was conducted in english, french, urdu, and arabic.
