Seniors enjoy life online

The number of Internet users in Canada continues to grow, spurred by seniors who have discovered a new digital lifestyle. According to a new report by Statistics Canada, 83 per cent of Canadians aged 16 or older were Internet users last year, up from 80 per cent in 2010.

Mobile Internet usage also exploded by about 75 per cent. While just 33 per cent of those surveyed in 2010 said they accessed the Internet by phone or tablet, it was up to 58 per cent in 2012.
