New data from Statistics Canada (via FYI Music News) shows how we Canadians tend to get our news. The information was gathered from a 2020 study called the General Social Survey on Social Identity.

In a shock to no one, we tend to go to the internet most often.

  • Internet: 80%
  • Television: 67%
  • Radio: 40%
  • Newspapers: 36%
  • Magazines: 11%

If you have a university degree, you probably went to the internet for news even more.
