The web survey carried out from November 4 to 9 with a panel assembled by the Angus Reid Institute indicates that 35% of respondents, including the undecided, support the Liberals and 33% the Conservatives.
The New Democratic Party (NDP) garners 18% of popular favor, compared to 5% for the Green Party (PV) of Canada.
In Quebec, the PLC dominates with 35% of support compared to 30% for the Bloc Québécois (BQ), 18% for the Conservative Party, 11% for the NDP and 5% for the Greens.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's popularity is 49%, up slightly from last summer. Conservative leader Erin O'Toole has enjoyed a 30% to 36% increase in his favorable rating since September, but the percentage of people who do not view him favorably has jumped from 31% to 40%.
Unsurprisingly, the poll observes that dealing with the coronavirus crisis is the number one concern of Canadians these days. Among respondents, 65% believe that the Liberal government is doing a good job while 32% believe the opposite. The highest support for the Liberals was found in the Atlantic, at 78%.
The survey was conducted among 1,602 adult Canadians. No margin of error could be calculated.
