welcome

Welcome to the Your Insights Panel -- a forum to voice your opinion on things that matter to people living in Western Canada! We'll ask and then listen to what you have to say. You'll learn what the majority and the minority believe. Our promise is to share survey results, allow open dialogue on topical issues, and provide rewards for the time you spend participating.

Your Insights is managed by Insights West, a full service marketing research company servicing public and private sector clients in Western Canada.

The ongoing surveys you can expect to receive will be comprised of a combination of ‘fun’ surveys, and ‘paid’ surveys. The ‘fun’ surveys won’t take more than 5 minutes to complete for a chance to win gift certificates for some major retailers like Starbucks, Amazon.ca, Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire. The longer, ‘paid’ surveys you complete will earn you points that are redeemable for cash.
