Online Advertising is Said to Triple in Canada

Canada is one of the world’s most advanced online cultures. Broadband penetration is over 60%, and more than 63% of the population uses the Internet. However, advertising has been slow to take off until now.

The Canada Online Advertising report analyzes the trends that are quickly changing the once slow-to-change Canadian Internet marketing and media world. Due in part to advertisers' options being limited, online advertising didn’t really take off in Canada. Linguistic and cultural differences between French Canada and other parts of the country also initially inhibited online development.

Nevertheless, the online environment is changing, and Canadian businesses are now recognizing the potential of the web. eMarketer research and statistics agency estimates that online advertising spending in Canada will pass C$3.0 billion (US$2.44 billion) by 2011 - roughly triple its value in 2006.
