The figure is at some of the lowest levels since April 2021, when 33% of Canadians felt the country is headed in the right direction.

However, since April 2021, Canadian sentiment was on the rise up until a few months ago. Just a year ago, public sentiment was 8-10 points higher than it is now. 

In addition to lows being seen in Canada, internationally people agree that things are not headed in the right direction with only 18% of the U.S. public believes things are headed in the right direction. 

Around the world, people are dealing with rising food costs, energy costs, and inflation. 

According to Abacus Data, impressions of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are at a high-time negative.

Abacus Data has found that for the first time since taking office in 2015, Trudeau has the highest negative impression with 51% of people offering a negative view of the Prime Minister.

Additionally, people said they also disapprove of “the job the federal government led by Justin Trudeau is doing” at 51%.
