Confidence in Institutions
Trust and confidence in the institutions that make up society is vital to the wellbeing of a stable democracy and essential to economic and social growth.

How are we doing?

Source: Representative survey of Winnipeggers (N=1,200)

Winnipeggers have a general lack of confidence in all three levels of government and in government-run systems like health care, the justice system, and the police. Winnipeggers are similarly mistrustful of media and major corporations. There is a general feeling of disconnection in our community, including in the pillars that make up the systems we interact with daily. The systems are not working for the people that trust institutions the least.

The good news is that Winnipeggers trust charities and local merchants the most overall. Indigenous Winnipeggers place the most trust in charities of all surveyed groups.
