Now in its 19th year, the Edelman Trust Barometer is our annual trust and credibility survey, the world’s most robust exploration of trust in business, government, NGOs and media. The 2019 online survey sampled more than 33,000 respondents across 27 global markets.


As Canada prepares for a federal election and the ongoing impact of global political and economic unrest, matters of trust continue to demand our attention. The 2019 Edelman Trust Barometer revealed that trust is up for all institutions, but Canadians are more polarized than ever. 

On February 14th, Edelman Canada President and CEO, Lisa Kimmel presented the global and Canadian findings of the Edelman Trust Barometer at the Toronto Region Board of Trade. In case you missed it, you can watch the full event below.
