Canadians live online. In a recent study by Ipsos Reid that tracked how many hours citizens of eleven major countries spend online each month, Canadians doubled the world average at 44 hours per month. The United States was a distant second at 35 hours per month. Clearly Canadians have embraced the Internet. And beyond our own borders, Canada is respected around the world as a leading, enlightened, and progressive nation. Economically, socially, and politically, Canada is seen as a desirable place for tourism, investment, business, immigration, and education.
