Communications Monitoring Report

The Communications Monitoring Report (CMR) provides an overview of the prices, revenues, subscriber data, and technology penetration related to the telecommunications and broadcasting industries.

New for the 2019 data: This year's release focuses on the highlights of each sector. All of the infographics, figures and tables that were made available in previous years, as well as 2019 data, are available on Open Data. Use the "Find a CMR dataset" link to search for the data you need.

Note: The Consumer Household Expenditures and Spending section was not published this year because its main data source, Statistics Canada’s Survey of Household Spending, was not published in 2019.
