There are a few big ones that do Canada.
But just looking on here, seems far fewer vs USA.

Mystery Shopper Services currently has "Watch a Live Broadcast from your Computer or Smart Phone & fill out a survey" shops for any shoppers in Canada or the US. I posted them yesterday here on the job board of this site. You can review and request them on the iSecretShop platform under the web/phone shops tab.
Trailer checks are available for Canada through Movie Measure. If you are interested in checking the trailers at your local theater, then please download our app and register an account. You can then call us to be scheduled. We can be reached at 518.379.0347 or toll free at (888) 407-5572
As an Independent Contractor Social security number & SIN’s or EIN’s likely will be required for most legitimate mystery Shop companies. MSC’s In US & Canada need to verify the government legal status of any persons or businesses who they contract with and pay for services. IC’s are “self employed” so MSC’s pay you for your services. So Instead of using your SN you can get a Canadian “Business Number” since technically you own your own business. Earning money from mystery shopping is “self employed income” Lots of US Shoppers obtain an EIN which is equivalent to a Canadian BN & free to do. MSC’s must protect their businesses from illegal fraud. Just as Mystery Shoppers need to protect themselves from the same. You’re “partnering” with a company to provide your services so the protection works both ways. Here’s the link to register for a BN [www.canada.ca]
Thanks, I assume that Canadian residents do not need to provide an W9 form for payment to be released, per the contract. That is why I did not sign up initially because it appeared that Mystery Shopper Services was only for U.S. citizens.
No, ISS is the platform that mystery shop companies use to manage their job postings. ISS is not a mystery shop company.
