The Media Technology Monitor (MTM) is Canada’s leading survey in the area of technology ownership and use. 

The ever-changing shift in technology continues to impact how consumers behave, not just in what they buy and how they use it, but also their intentions and expectations.  Keeping up with these shifts has never been more important.  History has shown just how quickly a shift in technology can bring a brand to the top (Netflix) and just as quickly make them disappear (Blockbuster).

Staying on top of these shifts and what they mean for you and your brand is a constant challenge.

With Media Technology Monitor, we can give you the latest data on Canadians behaviours and brand preferences around technology filtered by demographic, language or region, for areas such as:

  1. OTT (over-the-top video content)
  2. Smart devices including mobile and smart speakers
  3. Online audio and streaming
  4. Social Networks
  5. News and sports content
