We were saddened to hear today that Canada’s Marketing Research and Intelligence Association will be ceasing operations with effect from the 31st August.
Founded through the merger of the Canadian Association of Market Research Organizations (CAMRO), the Canadian Survey Research Council (CSRC) and the Professional Marketing Research Society (PMRS), the MRIA has been the unified voice of the research industry in Canada for the past 14 years and has been a key player in ensuring that the industry is represented to legislators in Canada, as well as protecting the public through their Code of Conduct and Professional Standards team, thus maintaining a key role in professional certification and maintaining the highest quality standards in Canada.
