Canadians Overwhelmingly Support Legal Access to Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy Says Poll

CANNANNEW REPORT

A new poll, commissioned by the Canadian Psychedelic Association, has highlighted widespread support for legal access to psilocybin-assisted therapy among Canadians. The Canadian Psychedelic Association (CPA) has today released data from a telephone survey of over 1,000 Canadian adults. The poll, conducted by Nanos Research, demonstrates public appetite for expanding legal access to psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy for a variety of cohorts. One of the headline findings is that 82% of Canadians approve the use of psilocybin-assisted therapy for those suffering from an end-of-life illness, a landslide opinion. Just 4% of respondents disapproved of the use of psilocybin-assisted therapy for those suffering from an end-of-life illness. The poll also found that only 38% of respondents were aware of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy, suggesting that public education and awareness campaigns should remain a priority. Interestingly, British Columbia was an outlier in this regard, with 69% of respondents aware of the therapy. Interestingly, the poll appears to reveal that providing legal routes for certain groups to access psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy is not particularly politically risky, with just 7% of respondents saying that such a move would make them less likely to support a political party. 21%, meanwhile, said it would make them more likely to support a party. Finally, around two-thirds of Canadians believe that the government should also expand legal access to psilocybin therapy for those who qualify under the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) rules. Buoyed by these findings, the CPA now aims to introduce evidence-informed regulations to Health Canada officials.
