Access to the Internet in Canada, 2020
From Statistics Canada:
More than ever, Canadians relied on the Internet to perform various activities in their daily lives in 2020. Access to the Internet at home has become essential for many Canadians who have had to adjust the way they work, study, keep in touch with loved ones, make purchases and use online services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Four-fifth of Canadians (80%) reported having a mobile data plan for personal use. Roughly 81% of Canadians living in a CMA/CA had a mobile data plan, compared with 73% of those living outside a CMA/CA.
Approximately 470,000 or 1.5% of Canadians reported having a mobile data plan but no home Internet connection.
