Nanos Research (previously named SES Research) is a Canadian public opinion and research company established in 1987. It is run by Nik Nanos, who also maintains a popular blog discussing political polling numbers.

For the 2004 Federal Election SES launched a publicly available nightly tracking program, the first of its kind in Canadian election history. The firm received great praise when it correctly predicted the outcome of the 2006 Federal Election to within one tenth of one percentage point for the four major parties - a record in Canadian polling history.
