Partnership Gives AskingCanadians the Largest Singular Sample Reach in Canada

October 8, 2013 (Toronto, ON) – AskingCanadians is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Research For Good Inc. (RFG), an online sample company committed to providing reliable, high-quality respondents while also supporting registered charities and not-for-profits by making donations with every survey complete.

The partnership gives AskingCanadians combined access to more than 600,000 Canadians—the largest singular sample reach in Canada—and significantly increases the breadth and depth of the AskingCanadians online research community.

By partnering with RFG, AskingCanadians is now including respondents from hundreds of unique sources using RFG’s proprietary Virtual Panel™ methodology. Virtual Panel™ blends the best of traditional email panel, social-media and profiled river methodologies to create a real-time, yet targetable, replicable and representative sample source. Utilizing this methodology, AskingCanadians is now able to offer the most diverse and comprehensive sample sourcing in Canada – and every RFG complete generates a donation to charity.

“AskingCanadians has established itself as the fastest growing online research community in Canada,” said AskingCanadians VP Raj Manocha. “This partnership with RFG complements our growth strategy and provides us with the capacity we require to meet the needs of our clients. The partnership also provides our Canadian clients with a single access point for sample in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain and France.”

“We are excited to build upon our relationship with AskingCanadians,” said RFG Co-founder Matthew Ronco. “We chose to partner with AskingCanadians because of the firm’s reputation within the Canadian marketplace, its panel management experience, flexibility and strict privacy policies.”
