We know what’s on B.C.’s mind.

What began in 2018 for the sole purpose of gathering better, more timely insights from our member businesses to fuel effective advocacy on their behalf, flourished into a one-of-kind, digital intelligence platform – the BCMindReader survey platform – supported by an engaged Insight Community of over 3,700 members.

Since 2018, the platform has allowed us to engage businesses of every size, from every sector and region of the province, and gather near real-time intelligence on matters that range from international trade and the Canadian economy to labour market issues and workforce challenges at the regional and local community levels. The platform has also allowed us to support the survey needs of clients in both the public and private sectors, most notably the provincial and federal governments, who rely on robust data to plan forward.

Post-pandemic, we are committed to engaging with our Insight Community members and listening to what keeps them up at night, so that we can respond through bold and proactive advocacy. We are also actively challenging our approach and seeking new and better ways to collect business intelligence so that we really do have our finger on the pulse of business at all times.

It is in this context that we are excited to share the the BCMindReader survey platform will soon be supported by a new provider that has a deep understanding of the provincial business community and can help us gather business intel regularly, efficiently and cost effectively.

We look forward to sharing further details in the coming weeks and thank you for your continued support!

The BCMindReader Insight Community is free to join, therefore giving every British Columbian an opportunity to participate in surveys on topics they care about. Interested in learning more about our Insight Community? Contact us today at [email protected]
