    Description:

    The adoption and use of information and communications technologies (ICTs) by individuals and businesses in part determines a country's ability to participate successfully in the global information economy. As the Internet is an essential component of ICT infrastructure, its use has become a key hallmark of this participation. In order to situate Internet use both geographically and over time, this study compares 2005 and 2007 Canadian use rates with those of other selected countries, as well as among Canadian provinces.

    This article compares the performance and characteristics of fast-growing small- and mid-sized Canadian Internet service providers (ISPs) with those of their slower-growing counterparts. The study also examines the different strategies employed by the two groups as well as their differing perceptions of potential impediments to their growth.

    The main findings relate to the effects of the two groups' business strategies on their core business and diversification, revenues and expenses, broadband and narrowband services, subscriber base and customer retention rates, connection options and growth impediments.

    Description:

    The vast majority of Internet service providers (ISPs) in Canada are small- and medium-sized companies striving to compete with large and more dominant telecommunication and cable companies.

    Based on data from Statistics Canada's Annual Survey of Internet Service Providers and Related Services for 2000 and 2002, this article compares the performance and characteristics of fast-growing small- and mid-sized Canadian ISPs with those of their slower-growing counterparts. The study also examines the different strategies employed by the two groups as well as their differing perceptions of potential impediments to their growth.

    Description:

    Electronic commerce in Canada has grown from $5.7 billion in 2000 to over $28 billion in 2004. Despite this growth, barriers remain to e-commerce's effective integration into the economy. The authors compare responses to Statistic Canada's Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology for the years 2001 and 2003. This Canada-wide business survey lists ten barriers to e-commerce adoption and asks firms to identify those that apply. The authors identify statistically significant changes over time and show that barriers are changing, but are not consistent across firm size or industry sector. The authors conclude that policies aimed at encouraging e-commerce adoption must be specific to both firm size and industry sector.

    Description:

    This paper analyses data from the Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology 2002 that looks at the acquisition of significantly improved technologies and the introduction of new or significantly improved products to the market. The target groups are technological innovators (firms that acquired new technologies and/or sold new products), and non-innovators (firms that neither acquired new technologies nor sold new products). A series of profiles is presented of information communication technology (ICT) use as well as barriers to its use for technological innovators and non-innovators.
