Hosted in Canada Survey Features

Our platform allows you to quickly create intuitive, powerful, online question-and-answer surveys that can work for tens to thousands of participants without much effort.

With just your web browser, you'll be able to develop, publish and collect responses to surveys. Hosted in Canada Surveys includes a wide range of built-in question types, and a range of flexible options. Your surveys can include branching, your own preferred layout and design (using a templating system), and a reporting / statistics engine, along with export options for a variety of 3rd party statistical analysis tools (such as SPSS, R, and STATA).

Surveys can be public, or can be strictly controlled through the use of "once-only" tokens for each survey participant.
