Stats Canada internet usage report

2010-05-12

Queen’s University film and media professor Sidney Eve Matrix will be available to talk about the Statistics Canada report on Canadian Internet usage that was released this morning.

Professor Matrix has read highlights of the report and is available to talk about internet-use trends and their significance to Canada's connected culture.
"More of us are using the web regularly, most especially the over-45 set. Email is far from dead, and the top search on-line is for healh info. The report also shows the digital divides separating the on-line and off-line according to diferences in income, age, and location are narrowing," says Professor Matrix.
