Internet use in Canada is prolific, with 94% of Canadians going online for personal use in 2022, up from 91% in 2018. Not only are more Canadians using the Internet since the COVID-19 pandemic, but more are managing their personal and household finances online.

Based on data from the Canadian Internet Use Survey, 82% of Internet users conducted online banking in 2022, representing a small but significant increase from 80% in 2018. This growth was largely driven by adults aged 65 years and older: the proportion of older adults using online banking increased from 62% in 2018 to 70% in 2022. This increase was seen for both older men and women and was perhaps partly driven by the preference for contactless transactions during the pandemic.
