Canada’s Largest Market Research Firm Named Distinguished Partner of Barrie-based College

A 16-year relationship has been recognized with a special honour. Georgian College has named Ipsos as a Distinguished Partner – the first and only market research firm to receive this distinction.

Part of the college’s Board of Governor’s Awards of Distinction program, the award recognizes partners in the community who have “made an exemplary contribution in support of student access and success, as well as the mission and goals of the college”.

“It is a truly unique honour for Ipsos,” says Jordan Levitin, Senior Vice President with Ipsos Reid in Toronto and the primary liaison between the two organizations. “Georgian’s Research Analyst program is central to our industry, graduating 30 to 40 researchers every year who can be hired with the skills and understanding that will make them – and us – successful.”

Over the 16 years, Ipsos has been active in the Advisory Committee for the program. The company sponsors the John H. Fryer Award celebrating excellence in project work, contributes to a highly effective recruitment website, and provides several internship opportunities every year for students in the program.

Each year, Ipsos researchers are also invited to the College to lecture on a number of topics, providing real-world guidance to students.

The benefits to Ipsos are equally impressive. “Look around our office, and you’ll find many of the program’s alumni among the ranks of our current and future leaders,” adds Levitin. “That’s a testament to the importance of Georgian’s research program to the future of Canada’s market research industry and how much Ipsos values this relationship with Georgian College.”

Georgian’s post-graduate Research Analyst Program (RAP) is the only program if it’s kind in Canada.
