We are an independent research firm with strong roots in Winnipeg and Ottawa, and have a professional and technical team of experienced specialists, including 30 full-time and 75 part-time, casual staff. We offer clients a team with advanced post-graduate training in social sciences, statistics, data analysis, management and market research.
We also have a roster of consulting associates, all professional or academic researchers with subject matter expertise in a variety of areas, such as advanced statistics, criminology, health, agriculture and challenges faced by Indigenous Canadians.
The company’s quality assurance and project management system has aligned with ISO-9001 standards since 1998, reflecting our commitment to the highest levels of research and client service. PRA is also a member of the newly created Canadian Research Insights Council (CRIC), which involves former Gold Seal Members of the now defunct Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA).
Many of the firm’s members are Credentialed Evaluators (CEs) with the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES). Members of our staff teach university-level courses, publish research literature and offer professional development courses to the market research and evaluation communities.
