Public Opinion Research Results
According to the Government of Canada’s Communications Policy, federal government advertising valued at more than $1 million must be assessed post-campaign to determine its impact and value. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the “Canada Apprentice Loan” advertising campaign using the Government of Canada’s standardized Advertising Campaign Evaluation Tool, or ACET survey.
The specific objectives of this research were to measure:
unaided recall of the advertising campaign;
aided recall of the advertising campaign by media;
recall of key messages of the campaign; and
awareness of who was responsible for producing the ads.
The results will be used by the Government of Canada to assess the effectiveness of the Canada Apprentice Loan advertisements.

Public Opinion Research Results
Specifically, the purpose of the quantitative post-testing is to evaluate the 2013-2014 Skills Initiative Campaign and to gauge Canadians’ awareness/knowledge of the campaign as seen on television and social media sites. Information obtained through this public opinion research can be extrapolated to the wider population of Canadians and allows Employment and Social Development Canada to determine the impact of its advertising campaign and provide direction on areas where the campaign can be adjusted to reach a broader Canadian public. The findings provide useful information to improve future campaigns which are better targeted, more informative and better geared to the target population of working age Canadians under 55 and Canadians in general.
