F.A.Q.

Survey

If you are using a mobile device, please try to complete the survey on a desktop or laptop to verify if the problem persists. Most of our surveys are compatible with mobile devices. Our clients, however, host some of our surveys and use technology that can be too powerful for mobile devices. These surveys can only be completed on a computer.

If you are already using a computer, your browser may not be up to date and your version may not take into account certain survey features. In this case, try updating your browser or using another browser (if you are using Internet Explorer, try Mozilla Firefox, Chrome or Safari).

Unfortunately, surveys do not allow you to go back, even if you have made a mistake.

We propose several surveys with variable completion times. In general, we mention the approximate duration of each survey submitted to you. This is an estimate based on the average time spent on the same type of surveys that panelists have answered previously.

In general, we need a pre-determined number of respondents for each socio-demographic profile to successfully carry out a study.

Between the moment a survey is posted to your account and the moment you consult it, other panelists have had time to answer the survey and our quota may be reached in your profile category.

Also, if you receive an e-mail to answer a survey that is closed when you are about to answer, it's because the respondent quota required for this survey has been reached between the time it was sent and when you opened it.

We recommend that you sign in to your LEO account frequently to verify the surveys pending under the "To Do Today" tab. You will find all the most recent surveys available under this tab, as well as the surveys you have not completed.

Surveys are sent to panelists whose demographics match study requirements. Then, within the same profile group, a random distribution is performed in order not to disadvantage any panel members and ensure the statistical validity of our studies.
You may therefore receive a few surveys on a quarterly, monthly or weekly basis, depending on current needs and the number of times your profile matches the one we are looking for in our surveys.

In addition, we do not necessarily send an email for every survey available in your account. We send an e-mail when we must reach a respondent quota required for a survey.

We suggest that you sign in to your LEO account frequently to verify the surveys pending under the "To Do Today" tab. You will find all the most recent surveys available under this tab, as well as the surveys you have not completed.

 

For most surveys, we need people from all backgrounds (age, gender, income, occupation, etc.). However, some studies require very specific criteria. The first questions in a survey are used to determine if the respondent’s profile corresponds to the desired profile for the current study.

Please note that none of the information provided in the qualifying questions section will be used or recorded.

The survey validation process may take up to 72 hours after you answer a survey. This is why the new account balance does not appear immediately after survey completion.

Profile informations

Only residents of Canada or the United States who have reached the age of legal majority in their province or state when they register can be LEO members.

Note that people 14 years of age or older may be part of the LEO panel, but their parent's approval will be required to open the account and apply for a reward.

We help Canadian and US companies and public entities to understand the lifestyle and consumption habits of their clients and residents in order to help them make informed decisions that are in-line with local societal issues, which is why it is so important to obtain the opinion of the residents of these two countries. Any registration and connection of a resident of a foreign country will be considered illegal. The account will be closed and the points earned cancelled.

When you register on LEO's portal, you are sent an e-mail to confirm your registration. It is important to click on the confirmation link in this e-mail to validate that you accept to answer LEO surveys. We recommend you check that this e-mail is not in your junk mailbox. If this confirmation step is not carried out, you will receive very few surveys, or none at all, since your account would not be 100% activated.

LEO offers rewards of a specific value to ensure that members cash out frequently and avoid accruing large account balances. As mentioned in the terms of use, LEO is not a financial establishment and the bonuses offered are not actual cash deposits. Claims should therefore be made whenever bonus levels have been reached.

Only members registered with the Aeroplan program can claim Aeroplan reward miles. However, members who earn Aeroplan miles cannot claim any other type of reward.

If you don’t earn Aeroplan miles, you have access to all other types of rewards offered on the LEO platform.

Contests

Every time you answer surveys, you earn chances, whether you have been selected to complete the entire survey or you were refused because a quota was reached or because your profile did not meet the study’s requirements.
You are automatically entered in the monthly contest as soon as you answer at least one survey in the same month. Chances are reset to zero monthly for all panelists after the draw for the winners.

Chances are reset to zero monthly in order to establish equality between all members.
You must be active on LEO to qualify for the monthly contest. The draw will be held with respondents who answered at least one survey and not with all panel members, whether active or not. 

Invitation

If you would like to refer a few people, simply follow the invitation process under the “To Do Today” tab, in the “Extra” section and receive 1,000 points once your invitation is validated.

For an invitation to be validated and credited to you, it must respect the following different validation steps:
