Canada’s Internet Factbook

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) released Canada’s Internet Factbook today, which includes statistics about Canada’s Internet and Canadians’ online habits, perceptions and experiences. This includes worries around the security of private information, with 81 per cent of Canadians expressing concern about the security of their personal information held by a government department in the event of a cyberattack.

Also included in Canada’s Internet Factbook are statistics around the amount of time Canadians spend online, their online purchasing habits, awareness of cybersecurity threats, social media preferences, experiences with online harassment and accessing online subscription services versus pirated content.

Canada’s Internet Factbook is developed annually, primarily through CIRA research, which was gathered through an online survey conducted in March 2018.
