Why Market Online?


The Internet is where people in the 21st Century get their news and information. Not only are consumers exposed to brands on the Web, they also compile product data, evaluate options and customer opinions, and build a knowledge base that drives their purchase decisions. And, of course, more and more of these purchase decisions are even transacted online. 
  • In 2009, 80% of Canadians aged 16 and older, (21.7 million Canadians), used the Internet for personal reasons. This was an increase of 73% from 2007 when the survey was last conducted Rates of internet use increased in every province during this two-year period, 81% in Ontario. Also reduced since 2007 was the “digital divides” of income and education.
  • 96% of internet users aged 16 or older go online from home during 2009, and 75% went online every day during a typical month, up from 68% in 2007. Average time spent online was approximately 5 hours per week. This increase is due in part to 92% of connections being high-speed although the types of home connections differed from region to region.  
  • By 2009, 65% of all Canadians reported using the Internet for five or more years, up from 54% in 2007. As well, people who had used the Internet longer also reported a wider range of online activities.
