Shout My Problem

Until October 2018, CivicInfo BC has entered into a pilot project with Shout My Problem, a Canadian service that allows you to anonymously “shout” any problem you have to a community of vendors who might have the solution you’re looking for.  How it works:

  1. Fill out the form below.  Shout My Problem will post your problem, and fan it out to their networks.  As Shout My Problem is currently in beta, with a growing and developing list of vendors, local governments are asked to submit problems that don’t have tight deadlines.
  2. Post as many problems as you want.  It's important that you describe your problem, not the presumed solution. If you can effectively communicate the problem, you may receive unexpected solutions. Shout My Problem is about research, not procurement, and those who use this service will want to be open minded about the responses.
  3. Your post will be anonymous. Shout My Problem will not publish your name, the name of your local government, or your contact information. When pitches come in from companies who might be able to solve your problem, the pitches will be forwarded by Shout My Problem to the email address you provide.

Any Questions or concerns please contact


Shout My Problem will not publish your email address online, but it is required so they may contact you for verification purposes. Shout My Problem will also send any pitches received on your behalf to this email address. Please use your official corporate email address, and not a personal one. If you do not receive these emails, please check your spam filter.
All fields required.


Shout My Problem will publish your problem, as described. Be brief but descriptive. Anything relevant that will help potential vendors understand the nature and scope of the problem. Do not include your name, email or any personal contact information. If you want to include the name of your organization, you can, but be aware that could lead to spam. Shout My Problem may edit for brevity and clarity.
