    POLL RESULTS

    On June 11, we deployed our first U-Report Canada test poll. For this poll, we wanted to know how many youth with jobs pay taxes. We learned that 74% of young respondents are currently employed.

    Of those…

    68% said that taxes were deducted from their paycheques

    18% said that they didn’t know whether or not taxes were deducted from their paycheques

    17% indicated that they didn’t know whether or not they received a tax refund

    These results will be used to support our continuing advocacy for young people’s right to vote and their right to information.

    Privacy

    Your right to privacy is important to us. U-Report does not collect personally identifiable data. Your individual answers are confidential and only a summary of collected data is shared publicly. Registration information is not connected to or visible from the results that are shared back.

    U-Report will never ask you for personal or identifying information, and you should never share personal or identifying information. This includes your full name, email, address, telephone number, school name, parents’ names, credit card number, or social security number.
