Our latest Globe Insider studies

November 2020


We asked people across Canada how their needs for life’s luxury products and services have changed, what types of purchases they’ve made and how they feel about shopping online, and in-store.

Explore our highlights to inform how you can respond to consumer needs, during the holiday season and into the new year.

april 2021


It has been one year since the COVID-19 pandemic put the world into lockdown and changed our lives.

We first reached out to our Globe Insiders audience panel at the start of the pandemic, and have connected with them again, to learn how they have been impacted over the past year, what they are looking forward to, as we move toward a “new normal” and their views on brands and advertising. 

June 2020


We reached out to the respondents from our initial COVID-19 survey, who had indicated that the current crisis was having a direct impact on their investments.

Learn about how they have been reacting to their personal finance challenges in detail, what actions they are taking, and what information and advice they are looking for.

After months of stay-at-home guidelines and travel restrictions, governments across the country are now initiating a process for re-opening.

may 2020


We deployed a survey to our audience panel to gain insights into how Globe readers have adapted their shopping activities during the COVID-19 crisis and how they feel about shopping both online, and in-store.
