New Angus Reid Business Forum to offer unique insights to Canadian businesses, from Canadian businesses

TORONTO, ONTARIO – (May 29, 2017) – Maru/Matchbox, a leading market insights firm, has partnered with the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB) to establish the Angus Reid Business Forum, a best-in-class market research community. Under the agreement, CFIB members will be invited to participate in online surveys, to provide true business-to-business insights to help shape the business environment around them.

“There’s an enormous demand among users for access to surveys that sample the kind of business opinion that can power real insight. With the Angus Reid Business Forum, we’re creating a uniquely powerful community and making it available to companies across Canada who want to get informed feedback on product development, marketing programs, and other important initiatives,” said Rob Berger, Managing Director, Market Communities at Maru/Matchbox.

“This is a unique and exciting opportunity for CFIB members that like to take an active role in shaping their world, to do so via Canada’s premiere insights firm,” said Corinne Pohlmann, Senior Vice-President of Partnerships at CFIB. “Already they have the opportunity to affect the political climate through CFIB’s own surveys. Now they can have a direct impact on what other businesses bring to market to meet their needs. It’s purely voluntary, and we know that many members will jump at this new opportunity to have their voice heard.”

A true business-to-business community, membership in the Angus Reid Business Forum is by invitation only and all members are validated as being business owners through their membership with CFIB. Access to the community is available starting immediately.
