Canada, the Most Positive Global Influence [Infographic]

According to a recent poll done by the United Kingdom’s second largest market research organization, Ipsos MORI, Canada is seen as the most positive influence in the world when it comes to foreign affairs.

The poll asked 18,000 people in 25 nations and found that an outstanding 81 percent of them saw Canada and its organizations had a strong and positive influence globally. This includes:

  • 20 percent who thought Canada was strongly positive
  • 61 percent who thought Canada was somewhat positive
  • 19 percent who thought Canada had a negative effect

A year earlier in 2016, Canada was also found by survey participants to have an 81 percent positive rating in foreign affairs. See more worldwide rankings at Canada Facts & Infographics today.
