Canadian Election Misinformation Project

The Canadian Election Misinformation Project was a civil society and academic partnership led by McGill University's Media Ecosystem Observatory.

It aimed to rapidly identify and respond to mis- and disinformation incidents during the 44th Canadian Federal Election while evaluating the extent to which these incidents impact the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians. It also sought to develop understanding of the types and consequences of misleading and false information circulating in the public sphere in addition to supporting world-class research into the dynamics of the information ecosystem and the broad impacts of misinformation on Canadian democracy.

The final project report was released on April 1, 2022.
