Canadians more wired than Americans

March 26, 2009

According to eMarketer, over 69% of Canada's population is online this year, compared to less than 65% in the US. A recent survey by MSN Canada and Harris/Decima found that four-fifths of Internet users in Canada spend at least one hour a day online for personal reasons, and 45% of those spend 3 hours or more online daily. A large part of Canadians' personal time on the Internet is taken up with e-mail, instant messaging, and social networks. Those on the Web have an average of 7 online accounts. eMarketer
