Of that figure, 36% are using smartphones for online access and 13% are using tablets. Of the smartphone users, 51% are male and 49% female.

Those 25 to 34 have a leading 22% of the country's smartphone audience, dropping off to 7% for those 65 and older. Altogether, there are 18 million active smartphones in Canada, up 12% since June 2013. 7.8 million tablets are employed in Canada, up 13% during that same time period. As for smartphone penetration, Canada places second with 78% of the country's cellphone users clutching a smartphone.
