Canada has the greatest number of Internet users of any country in the world, according to a recent study by the Internet Industry Almanac.

The study showed that Canada is the per-capita leader with nearly 43 per cent of the population labelled “regular” Internet users — those over 16 who use the Internet at least once a month. (These numbers include business, educational and home Internet users).
