Canadians are avid news consumers. Half tune in to watch a local news show in a typical night. When you examine the heaviest of TV Viewers (watching 15+ hours in a typical week) this number jumps to 75% watching local news daily.
With so many options to watch content in a variety of languages on both traditional and new platforms how are Canadians taking advantage of the possibilities? About 1 in 5 Canadians have watched movie or TV content in another language other than French and English. Gen Z and those born outside of Canada are the most likely to watch content in something other than Canada's official languages (29% and 41% respectively).
Radio is a popular as ever with stability seen for more than a decade. Close to 9 in 10 Canadians have listened to radio in the past month. Radio consumption is heavily tied to the commute and people listening in cars – two thirds of listeners tune in from their vehicle.
85% of online Canadians report having some level of concern surrounding the impact of fake news in the world today. Gen Z (18-29) report a higher level of concern than other generations.
Smart speakers emerged in the Canadian market during the first quarter of 2018 - over 1 in 8 Canadians now own one with the majority being the Google mini or the Google Home.
