The Alberta Ministry of Energy engaged Innovative Research Group Inc. to conduct the Alberta Nuclear Public Consultation. The consultation process began with a multi-pronged qualitative research process to identify the range of views that Albertans hold on Alberta’s electricity options and nuclear energy. Once those views were identified, they provided the foundation for a telephone survey of 1024 randomly-recruited Albertans to see how many Albertans agreed with the various viewpoints raised during the qualitative research process. Since only the telephone results are statistically representative of the Alberta population, the Executive Summary report uses the telephone survey results to illustrate key findings.
