How do we do our research?

  • We identify the topics that are important to you, based on the questions most frequently asked to search engines.
  • We scan all the products available on the Canadian market, we analyze each one of them in detail, we look at their specifications and all the technical information available.
  • We also look at existing product tests, often conducted by consumer organizations or authority sites.
  • We carefully read buyers comments and reviews, we consider the feedbacks given, and we also watch YouTube videos of use of the products in real conditions. Believe us, we learn a lot that way!
  • Finally, from all these hours of research and analysis, we make a selection to offer you the best products on the market according to the different needs of each one.

How does The Good Choice get paid?

We earn commissions on the sales of certain products. We also plan to develop partnerships in line with our advertising policy.

If readers choose to purchase the products we recommend as a result of our research, analysis, interviews and comparisons, our work is often (but not always) supported by an affiliate commission from the retailer at the time of purchase.

If readers return their purchases because they are dissatisfied or the recommendation is poor, we receive no commission.

We have no incentive to choose inferior products or to respond to pressure from manufacturers – in fact, just the opposite.

We think it’s a fair enough system that allows us to remain committed to serving our readers first, while remaining objective.

Our story: The Good Choice was born thanks to you!

Julien, the founder of The Good Choice, came up with this project while exploring the questions you ask on search engines.

He understood that there was a real need for guidance when shopping online, just as there is when shopping in a store.

The Good Choice was a very humble project at the beginning.

With few resources and little time, Julien, who already had a full-time job, developed the website and the first contents himself.

The first objective was to confirm your interest in this project: he was not mistaken, the need was there.

And so, little by little, The Good Choice grew, and then took on even more meaning with the pandemic and the rise of online shopping.

Tomorrow, The Good Choice will be even more relevant and useful content to help you store better online and save time every day.

It will be even more local and “green” products. Always for free. To shop even smarter.

To reach these goals, Julien is supported by several passionate people: discover the great team of The Good Choice.

Our challenge : Together, to consume better while limiting our ecological impact

We try to accompany you so that you can limit your ecological impact, while working hard to minimize ours as a company.

How can The Good Choice help you limit your ecological impact?

  • By guiding you to consume better and buy only the product you really need.
  • By offering you detailed and precise advice to help you choose the product that suits you best, thus limiting unnecessary return or exchange trips.
  • By offering you tips and tricks to maximize your daily purchases (use and maintenance) and optimize their lifespan.
  • By guiding you in the resale of your products or their recycling at the end of their life.
  • By giving visibility to local products, allowing you to consume locally. We are working hard to add more Canadian vendors to our recommendations. Look for the “Canadian choice” label.
  • By making it easy for you to identify products and brands that make a significant effort from an environmental point of view (manufacturing, distribution and others). Look for the “Green choice” label.

  • Everyone at The Good Choice works from home. This avoids unnecessary transportation and any additional energy consumption related to physical offices.
  • Our website server is based in Canada and runs on green energy.
