About this report
CIRA developed Canada’s Internet Factbook through an online survey conducted by The Strategic Counsel. The purpose of CIRA’s research is to identify trends in Canadian internet use. A total of n=1,200 adult Canadian internet users (18+) were surveyed in March 2017, and the sample is proportionate-to-population for age, region and gender. Additional data was taken from the UN’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU), Mlab and global domain industry statistics from Zook, CENTR and ntldstats.com.
The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) is a member-based not-for-profit organization, best known for managing the .CA internet domain on behalf of all Canadians, developing and implementing policies that support Canada’s internet community and representing the .CA registry internationally. We are building programs, products and services that leverage all the internet has to offer to help build a better online Canada, while providing a safe, secure and trusted online experience to all Canadians.
