Aumenta el uso de Internet entre Hispanos de Canadá


La limpieza de primavera. 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 específicamente cómo los Hispanos Canadienses usan el Internet para 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 or language.

- 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."

Census 2006:

The number of people who reported having knowledge of Spanish in Canada was 758,280, which was well above many other popular languages in Canada.

Internet Use Survey

- Almost three-quarters (73%), or 19.2 million Canadians aged 16 and older, went online for personal reasons during the 12 months prior to the survey.

- In 2007, 96% of persons aged 16 to 24 went online

- 66% of persons born outside of Canada used the internet

- High-speed connections are becoming far more prevalent. An estimated 88% of people who accessed the Internet at home did so with a high-speed connection in 2007, up from 80% two years earlier.

- Over 9 in 10 urban home users reported using a high-speed connection

- The increased use of broadband has also meant a rise in downloading or watching movies or television, and downloading music.
