Advanis is a privately owned Canadian market and social research firm known

for its innovation, technology leadership, and client responsiveness.


As a full service research firm, our clients include private sector businesses, not-for-profit and government clients, and leading consultancies. We think of ourselves as a scalable boutique, able to deliver on massive tracking programs; small studies; or customized discrete choice modeling.  We have built an organization with the size needed to fulfil global projects while still providing flexible, personal service.



In our 2014 client satisfaction survey, 95% of our clients said that we are better than other firms they work with.
