Aumenta el uso de Internet entre Hispanos de Canadá
Hispanos usan el Internet para mantenerse en contacto con su cultura.
Estadísticas Canadá dio a conocer en un reciente informe datos
estadísticos sobre cómo los canadienses usan el Internet, y

mantenerse ligados a su cultura e informarse sobre la actividades de
su comunidad en este país.
A continuación publicamos (en Inglés) el
informe emitido por el representante de Statistics Canada para la
comunidad Hispana, Fulvio Martinez.
The Department of Canadian Heritage prepared an independent research
study exploring consumer behaviours, social attitudes and demographics
of Canadians in six different ethnic groups. The research entitled:
Diversity in Canada, found the following:
- 71% of Hispanic population, 15 years of age or older, reported to have visited web sites targeting their own culture, ethnic background
- 72% of respondents to the survey reported visiting websites of local
community, event and news interest targeting people of their own
culture, ethnic origin or language.
- 41% of Hispanics, 15 years or older, reported interest in sites
featuring "the role of their community in Canada."
