How do Canadians consume media these days? Stats Canada has this report.

This morning’s FYIMusicNews.ca newsletter came with an interesting graphic. It’s a Stats Canada look at how we consume various forms of media. The highlights:

  • 80% say that we get most of our news and current affairs online followed by television at 67%.
  • No surprise: Young people use the internet more than older folk.
  • TV was more popular among women than men.

  • Hello Alan. I come from a radio background… so naturally I was curious about why radio consumption was only 40%, but then I realized this infographic is specifically about News & Public Affairs consumption in Canada. It’s not really reflective of where we go for other forms of information and entertainment.
