What is the NSLC Online Advisory Panel?

The NSLC created the NSLC Online Advisory Panel to ensure we know what our customers want. The Advisory Panel consists of NSLC customers who are interested in providing their opinions and feedback to the NSLC by participating in online surveys.

By participating in these surveys, you will help the NSLC better understand and meet your needs as a customer. You will have an opportunity to provide us with invaluable feedback on our services and products - feedback which will help us enhance what we offer and potentially develop new offerings.

The panel is sponsored by NSLC and maintained by our research partner, Narrative Research (formerly Corporate Research Associates). This panel is being used only to better understand our customers' opinions and needs and participation is completely voluntary. All personal information you provide will be kept confidential and survey responses will be presented in aggregate form only. The information you provide will not be used for sales solicitation.

As an appreciation for your time and contribution, surveys will typically have draws for prizes.

How often should I expect to receive an invitation to a survey?

We respect and appreciate your time and will keep the surveys to a reasonable frequency. We will ask you to complete at most a few surveys per year. We will target surveys based on information from the registration survey so that the surveys you are invited to participate in are most relevant to you.

How do I join?

To join the panel, you can visit www.nslcpanel.com or if you received an email invitation, you can click on the link provided in your invitation email. You must complete the registration survey to see if you qualify for the panel at this time.

Can I unsubscribe once I join?

This will ensure the invites come into your inbox. You can also add the addresses surveys@narrativeresearch.ca and panelsupport@narrativeresearch.ca to your contacts manually.

Yes. However, each email address can only be used once.
