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, has recently revealed the findings of its Canadian Millennials Social Values Study.

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.

Episode 1: Who Are Canada’s Millennials? Recognizing Their Diverse Social Values Tribes

This “anchor” episode will introduce listeners to the intentions of the research and high level findings by theme (“Life Goals & Markers of Adulthood”; “Career Aspirations & Work”; and “Political and Civic Engagement”).

It will also pinpoint insights within and across generations as well as how the findings might inform policies, practices and/or programs related to socio-economic, workforce, educational and civic engagement.

  • Keith Neuman will provide a general overview of the study and some of the findings by theme.
  • Keith and Michael Adams will discuss some of the implications of the findings taking into consideration previous work on social values “tribes”.

Episode 2 will be held on April 20, 2017, and Episode 3 will be held on April 21, 2017.

This webinar is hosted by The Counselling Foundation of Canada.
