When he was first elected in June 2018, Ford’s approval rating was 40 per cent, the polling company indicated.

Ford’s worst rating was in September 2019 at 26 per cent but it rebounded at the beginning of the pandemic.

This quarter of the Maru Public Opinion poll was from a survey done between Aug. 26 and Sept. 8 of 5,278 randomly selected Canadian adults who are Maru Voice Canada online panelists. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.4 per cent, 19 times out of 20. Polling is released regularly, every three months.
