About EKOS Politics

We launched this website in order to showcase our election research, and our suite of polling technologies including Probit and IVR. We will be updating this site frequently with new polls, analysis and insight into Canadian politics. EKOS's experience, knowledge and sophisticated research designs have contributed positively to many previous elections.

Other EKOS Products

In addition to current political analysis, EKOS also makes available to the public general research of interest, including research in evaluation, general public domain research, as well as a full history of EKOS press releases.

Evaluation

Every organization wants reliable and valid knowledge of the effectiveness of their activities. EKOS has one of Canada’s longest and most distinguished records in measuring the effectiveness of programs and other activities. Flexibility is a priority and our team prides itself on the ability to develop innovative solutions to meet the unique needs of individual clients.

Our evaluation frameworks, designs and performance measurement strategies ensure comprehensive issue coverage through multiple lines of evidence. Combining rigourous quantitative designs and consultation with relevant stakeholders means the full range of perspectives on program activities, impacts and alternatives is considered. Expanding the traditional evaluation issue areas to identify key management information needs makes sure our evaluations are both useful and helpful for the future.
