Presentations & Consulting
In addition to launching original research studies, the Institute pursues its mission by serving as a centre of excellence for responsible public opinion research, methods and application through education, training and consulting. The Institute offers its services on a cost-recovery basis, which include:
Presentations on public opinion, demographics and social values for conferences, workshops and in-house events; this may cover general trends and/or be customized to specific topics;
Expert advice and consulting on public opinion and social research, to assist organizations requiring guidance in such areas as purchasing research services, external review of existing studies, and research methodology; and
In-house training on survey methodology and analysis.
As an example, the Institute is a regular contributor to the ongoing educational program for newly-appointed Federal Judges organized by the National Justice Institute (NJI) and the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice (CIAJ). Twice a year, the Institute provides judges with an in-depth view of important trends in demography, public opinion and social values, to help them better understand how Canada is changing, and the social context underlying the cases and individuals they are being asked to adjudicate.
