The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (the Commission) annually collects financial and subscription information on Internet services. In addition, information on the availability of broadband Internet services is collected in partnership with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED). Also, the Commission conducts research into the data requirements of certain Internet-based audio and video applications. This data is mostly broken into three groups:
- Incumbent TSPs.
The Telecommunications Overview provides a glimpse into various aspects of telecommunications in Canada and includes the following: a description of the entities proving telecommunications services, revenue details for the six sectors (local and access, long distance, data, private line, fixed Internet and mobile), insight into the sources of revenue growth in telecommunications, metrics such as capital expenditures and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, customer contacts and complaints, as well as summaries of the six telecommunications sectors.
Longer-form descriptions are available for the retail fixed Internet and retail mobile sectors in separate sections of the 2018 Communications Monitoring Report.
The National Broadband Data represents coverage information across Canada for existing broadband service providers with their associated technology types. The coverage information is aggregated and deployed over a grid of hexagons, which cover areas of roughly 25 square km each. Broadband Internet service availability is provided for download/upload speed markers (5/1, 10/2, 25/5 and 50/10 Mbps) where more than 75% of total dwellings covered within the hexagon have access to broadband service offerings meeting these markers. In order to improve the granularity of the broadband data, ISED and the CRTC are providing aggregated and anonymous broadband services data based on the pseudo-household statistical model, hence achieving higher precision in depicting the broadband Internet
The Pseudo-Household Demographic Distribution is a geospatial representative distribution of demographic data (population and households) derived from the Canadian Census from Statistics Canada. Demography is distributed within Dissemination Blocks along roadways, providing a more accurate geospatial distribution while still aligning with published Census geographies.
Pseudo-household demographics are currently used to calculate broadband Internet service availability, but are equally applicable to other disciplines requiring a spatial distribution of households or population.

The public use microdata file (PUMF) from the Canadian Internet Use Survey (CIUS) provides data on the adoption and use of digital technologies and the online behaviors of individuals 15 years of age and older living in the ten provinces of Canada. The survey is built off the previous iteration of the CIUS, last conducted in 2012. While there is some comparability with the 2012 CIUS, the 2018 survey was redesigned in 2018 to reflect the rapid pace at which Internet technology has evolved since the previous survey iteration. The files include information on how individuals use the Internet, smartphones, and social networking websites and apps, including their intensity of use, demand for certain online activities, and interactions through these technologies.

In 2010, the Canadian Internet Use Survey (CIUS) was redesigned to better measure the type and speed of household Internet connections. It is a hybrid survey that measures both household Internet access and the individual online behaviours of a selected household member, including the use of e-commerce.
