A new study shows most Canadians believe the Atlantic Canadian provinces had the best response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this week, Narrative Research released the results of a poll asking Canadians which province or territory has done the best job, and which has done the worst job, at managing the pandemic.

Margaret Chapman, COO and partner at Narrative Research, said, collectively, the Atlantic Canadian provinces got the most votes.

"A quarter of Canadians picked one of the Atlantic Canadian provinces as having done the best job and almost no one said that Atlantic Canadian provinces did the worst job," said Chapman.

Chapman said nine per cent of respondents said named P.E.I., six per cent named Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador got five per cent and New Brunswick got four per cent.

The results show 14 per cent of Canadians named British Columbia while 34 per cent of Canadians were unable to name any province or territory as having best managed the pandemic.

Meantime, one-third of Canadians named Quebec as the worst at managing the pandemic, while one-quarter named Ontario.
