Top 10 Insights from 2016

By: Jim Pettinger, President of UCanTrade, Inc.

In recent years, we have been impressed with the output of Steve Mossop and his team at Insights West, a relatively new market research company that is focused primarily on the West. Every year, they publish approximately 50 public press releases on topics as diverse as municipal and provincial elections, bridge tolls, bike lanes, charitable giving, gas-fracking, road safety, housing affordability, employee satisfaction, social media trends, and many other topics. For a sampling, check out their annual list of “Top 10 Insights” from 2016. I recommend signing up for their newsletter at the bottom of their home page.
