In a world saturated with information, good evidence matters. As misinformation (false or misleading information) becomes increasingly prevalent, it will become even harder to identify credible and trustworthy evidence. A lack of good evidence undermines our ability to make informed decisions—from what to eat to who to vote for—threatening both our personal lives and the health of our democracy.
With this in mind, Evidence for Democracy (E4D) launched Evidence Matters in March 2023, their first public awareness campaign to empower Canadians to navigate evidence in everyday life.
