When our clients require ongoing research about a specific industry, we are happy to provide syndicated reports, using our expertise in a wide range of areas.
Canada This Month
Each month, INNOVATIVE surveys Canadians about the actors, issues and trends making — or about to make — news across Canada. Canada This Month is a tool to help public affairs professionals navigate through a volatile public opinion environment on a monthly basis.
- What are the public’s expectations of government?
- What is the acceptable range of responses to key issues?
- What are the boundaries or limits to government action?
- What issues is the public talking about across the country?
Canada This Month surveys are conducted over the internet using our online panel, Canada 20/20 www.canada2020.com. Canada This Month syndicated reports are based on the results of at least 4,000 Canadian respondents per month.
Ontario This Month
Our understanding of current issues coupled with our belief that all strategy must be founded in credible research led us to create Ontario This Month, which has been tracking Ontario public opinion since 2001.
Ontario This Month is more than a quick look at who’s up and who’s down in the polls. It’s a tool to help public affairs professionals navigate through a volatile public opinion environment. Ontario This Month accurately portrays present day opinion while providing historical context with an eye to the future by identifying emerging trends through sophisticated data analysis. It seeks to uncover and explain the boundaries surrounding public expectations and government, how issues evolve, how and why opinion changes.
One of the key challenges facing companies, governments and regulators is siting locally unwanted facilities. Most people accept the need for hazardous waste storage facilities, electricity generating plants and landfills, but do they want them in their backyard? The Understanding NIMBY report provides a cost-efficient opportunity for managers to learn key lessons about the common challenges they face.
Understanding NIMBY tracks a number of key attitudes relating to Locally Unwanted Land Uses (LULU’s) including:
- Perceived need for various land uses and facilities
- Attitudes towards key stakeholders
- General support for various land uses and facilities
- Support for land use and facility development in local communities
- Dread of various land uses and facilities
Understanding NIMBY looks at the views and experiences of over 2,500 Canadians allowing detailed regional breaks and providing an opportunity to explore relatively rare experiences.
