We often talk to students and staff at Canadian universities, who are looking for a web-based survey solution hosted in Canada.

Our survey software, Hosted in Canada Surveys, is a great solution for universities and academic researchers to deploy surveys and collect and analyze data.

In addition to academic research, our web based survey software can be used to rate student satisfaction, class evaluations, and to conduct academic research and to gather alumni feedback.

Here are some of the types of surveys universities and colleges can use our software for:

Faculty Academic Research

Academic research is by far the most common use of our web-based survey software at Canadian universities. The software is easy for students and non-computer orientated people to learn to use. Survey data can also exported to SPSS and other export formats for further offline analysis.

Generic Data Collection

Do you need to quickly gather information from students, faculty, or other members of your academic institution? Our Canadian web survey software is a great tool for quickly building a survey, inviting respondents quickly by email, collecting, and then reviewing results.

Multilingual International Surveys

Bilingual surveys are popular in Canada. Our Canadian web survey software supports up to 74 different languages for your survey. If you are an academic conducting a multinational multilingual survey, you'll love the ease in which you can build one survey and target it to a variety of languages.

Our software meets most of the criteria in the 508 Compliance Website, and also meets W3C standards for accessibliity. Since you can populate survey questions and answers with your own HTML text, to remain compliant, we recommend using basic content elements. Accessibility compliance will be dependent on how you build out your survey.

Accessibliity also depends on which templates you use. If you customize templates, you should test them with the W3C validator.
