The MRIA has been following developments in the Province of Alberta regarding a recent leaked poll. On March 19,2022, we learned that the leak may have originated from the governing political party in Alberta, the UCP according to the researcher and media reports. The MRIA condemns political interference, pressure and the abuse of power demonstrated by this most recent incident in the research industry. The MRIA would like to remind politicians, political parties, partisans and especially those in Government who may be positively or negatively impacted by polls, to refrain from behaviour or comments that may impact the economic or reputational standing of professional researchers.
The MRIA would also like to take this opportunity to remind media that there are both Canadian and International standards for the publication of public opinion research. To be published or referred to directly in media, a public opinion poll should note the mode (online, phone, etc), frame, field dates and margin of error if applicable and who commissioned the poll. For syndicated studies like the one in question, that should be noted for readers. In addition, the weighted and unweighted frequencies must be published. In this case, the researcher was unaware that her syndicated work had been leaked to media and the work was criticized unfairly because it lacked those details. Again, this may have economic and reputational impacts on the researcher because of the lack of disclosure by the media outlets.
"Public opinion research is an important part of our democratic process. When researchers like Janet Brown are put under pressure by the Governing political party of a Province, that is an abuse of power that should be vigorously condemned. The potential for economic and reputational harm to individuals and the broader industry make this incident unacceptable." said MRIA Chair Quito Maggi who is the President & CEO of Mainstreet Research. "Pollsters and researchers are used to scrutiny of their published work, including from political parties and media. In this case, it should have been clear to media that the work was not suitable for public consumption without permission from the researcher." he added.
This is a reminder that The Federal Government of Canada's tender request for Public Opinion Research Services in support of Canada's response to COVID-19 closes on June 29, 2021.

The Government of the Northwest Territories’ Procurement Shared Services Division has posted a procurement Event which we think your members may be interested in.
Event 4870 - NWT Fish Sales Marketing and Research Strategy can be found on the Contract Event Opportunities website, here: https://contracts.fin.gov.nt.ca/
If a member’s company is not registered on their site, they may take the time to do so by going to the Contract Event Opportunities website (above), and by clicking the link to Register as a Bidder, then following the steps. Please note that the process may take up to two days for approval.
Once a username and password has been set up, you will be able to view current tenders; however, you will not be able to view or download the procurement documents until the registration process is complete.
Also, any addendum notifications for an Event will not be received unless the member has gone into that particular Event and clicked the required “express interest” link. Therefore; once you do have access to the system, go into any active Events in which you are interested, and be sure to click express interest.
We are communicating with you again today to provide a clarification on our previous statement and to provide additional information.
Starting on March 19th, there was an unauthorized rebranding of the MRIA social media accounts including Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn. These pages and groups were rebranded as the “Data Insights School”. To be perfectly clear, this was not a mistake, this was not an accident, this was a deliberate and methodical dismantling of the MRIA across its digital platforms. This was done without communication, without the knowledge of the Board or MRIA and certainly without the authorization of anyone or group at MRIA who would have the authority to do so. Fortunately, we were able to reverse this.
We have retained the services of a professional Forensic Digital investigator to review the extent of the damage and exposure. The investigators have also been provided cellular phone records and related material to both validate existing evidence and to search for additional evidence.
At this time, we have no evidence of a third party being involved. While our investigation continues, we want to be clear that CRIC has denied any involvement in these actions and we are taking their word for it.
We will continue to keep you updated if we learn anything further regarding this data breach.
