Product Testing is available in Canada ~ In a variety of ways.
There are companies that distribute free samples to a certain amount of people based on certain criteria . It may factor where you live, how old you are, If you have children, health problems, etc. Companies sometimes only have a certain amount of product to try, so they may even do it randomly.
You will need to be an active participant on these sites as without good reviewers these programs wouldn’t work.
Brands / Review Companies with Product Testing Sites work together to allow you to try products for free in exchange for your input of feedback and honest opinion.
Each product review site works a little differently and each review may have its own requirement.
Not every single member will be eligible for every campaign. Criteria is usually based on a qualifying survey you will need to fill out such as children, location, shopping habits, hobbies, etc
To get the most of these programs It’s a HUGE Qualifier to be an ACTIVE member of each of these sites.
You must expect “Nothing” and hope for “something” as in an opportunity to try a product.

Product Testing ~ Once you are accepted, we will send you email invitations to participate in product evaluations as projects arise which match your demographics (obtained during registration). These email invitations will spell out the various details about the project, i.e., the type of product, the estimated time involved, the time period, the incentives, etc. If you are qualified and willing, you are linked to a screening questionnaire. We select participants from among those who have completed the screener. If we have more qualified registrants than we need, we randomly select the participants.
Location Based Product Testing Opportunities
Alberta Agriculture in Edmonton Alberta ~ Available in Edmonton Alberta The Consumer Product Testing Centre (CPTC) is part of the Food Processing Development Division of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development. We work with Alberta’s agri-food industry to develop new food products and processes that help add value to Alberta’s agricultural commodities. Evaluation of many of these new food products takes place at the CPTC where taste panellists sample the foods and give their consumer opinions. CPTC staff maintains a secure database of people over the age of 18 who are periodically recruited to participate in taste panels. Those who meet the demographic requirements for the particular test are asked to participate at a scheduled time and date. All participants receive an honorarium, starting at $15 depending on how much time the test will take, and the type of product that is evaluated.
