76% of Canadians own a smartphone. They are an integral part of the lives of Canadians, who use them primarily to access the Internet.
77% of Canadians say that technology helps them communicate with other people. Cell phone technology helps me keep in touch with my children.

66% of Canadians say that technology helps them save time.
52% of Canadians say that technology helps them make more informed decisions. It is true that with smartphones, laptops and tablets, we easy access to a lot of information on a myriad of subjects.
