About The Canadian Internet Project (CIP)
The Canadian Internet Project is a longitudinal study of the Internet,
conventional media and emerging technologies in Canada. Results from the 2007
survey complement its benchmark study conducted in 2004. CIP examines use and
non-use patterns as well as Canadians' attitudes and behaviour towards media
and technology. Through CIP's affiliation with the World Internet Project - a
network of research centres in 28 countries throughout the world - Canadian
media activities are presented in global perspective. Led by some of Canada's
leading researchers in this field, the study provides a detailed analysis of
the Internet, media and technology in Canada that will be of interest to
policy makers, businesses, the media and the cultural industries. CIP member
partners include: the Canadian Media Research Consortium, Government of Canada
(Canadian Heritage, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat), Ontario Media
Development Corporation, Telefilm Canada, Bell University Laboratories,
Interactive Advertising Bureau of Canada, eBay Canada, CBC, and CRTC. For more
