The Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) required a panel composed of practitioners, methodologists and scholars with a high degree of expertise in the field from the private sector, the academic sector, Statistics Canada and Government of Canada departments and agencies that conduct public opinion research to advise on standards and guidelines for public opinion surveys conducted online.

The work of the Advisory Panel on Online Public Opinion Survey Quality builds on the work of the 2006-2007 Advisory Panel on Telephone Public Opinion Survey Quality. The Online Advisory Panel focused on areas where standards and guidelines specific to online surveys are required; for areas where standards and guidelines apply equally to telephone and online surveys, those recommended by the Telephone Advisory Panel are restated in this report.

The role of the Panel was also to reach consensus where possible, although this was not an essential outcome of the work of the Panel.
