The Environics Institute for Survey Research, a non-profit public interest organization that conducts relevant and original public opinion and social research related to issues of public policy and social change, recently revealed the findings of its social values study of Canadian Millennials. The findings offer a bold portrait of Canada’s Millennials (those born between 1980 and 1995) that for the first time presents the social values of this generation, and the distinct segments that help make sense of the different and often contradictory stereotypes that so frequently are applied to today’s young adults.
