The Consumer Choice Award team partners with Léger Marketing to obtain feedback from thousands of consumers and businesses through an exhaustive national survey. For us, this is not only a true pledge of quality and trust, but also an honour that serves to differentiate us.
“[Translation] Consumer Choice Award has been helping people make the best choices since 1987. It is the only organization to identify the best service providers in various categories by means of an independent, statistically accurate market survey. Consumer Choice Award recipients are selected by you, the consumer, rather than by a committee of judges. Each year, consumers from across Canada are surveyed and asked about their opinions, perceptions and expectations of the daily services they benefit from. Léger Marketing, Canada’s leading market survey company, is mandated to survey both consumers and organizations. Only the top-ranked companies are selected for consideration. The Consumer Choice Award logo is considered a mark of excellence and serves to identify those companies that were selected as exceptional service providers.” – Consumer Choice Award
