Outside of Alberta, the provinces where respondents offered the most support for an Alberta Pension Plan were Quebec (32 per cent) and Saskatchewan (31 per cent). Quebec has always maintained its own pension plan and is not a part of CPP.

The plurality of Canadians surveyed, however, opposed Alberta’s proposed exit. 47 per cent of respondents nationwide, including Alberta respondents, said they opposed Alberta leaving the CPP. Only 25 per cent said they supported the province forming its own plan.

The survey was conducted in late November. 3,749 Canadian adults were surveyed, and the margin for error was cited as +/- 1.5 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
