The expertise of our researchers is complemented by a large survey staff, many of whom have completed or are in the process of completing post-secondary education. R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd. routinely offers respondents the option to complete surveys in either of Canada's official languages; and as many of our surveyors are fluent in other languages, when requested, surveys can be completed in languages other than English and French.

Our professional staff are members of various professional associations, including the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) and the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA); and, they routinely attend conferences and training to remain abreast of the most current protocols and methods.
