State of the media democracy survey, fifth edition

Deloitte Canada gets inside the media consumption habits of Canadians


State of the Media Democracy Survey, Fifth Edition

From the big screen and billboards to fit-in-your-palm personal mobile devices, advertisers have multiple ways to reach consumers. The elusive question for Canadian advertisers, however, is how Canadians access and interact with information and entertainment. Deloitte Canada’s State of the media democracy survey – the first such survey in Canada, and the fifth for Deloitte U.S. – reveals some interesting insights.

This generational reality check provides a snapshot of how Canadian consumers between the ages of 14 and 75 are interacting with media, entertainment and information — and what their preferences might be in the future. Based on distinctly Canadian data, the State of the media democracy survey answers several key questions:

  • Which type of advertising has the most impact on Canadian consumers’ purchasing decisions?
  • How do Canadians access their favourite TV shows — and are viewing habits changing?
  • What else are Canadian viewers doing while they watch TV?
  • What role do Canadians envision their TV playing in the future?
  • Are the limited options for streaming media in Canada leading to piracy?
  • Who do Canadians trust for their news?
  • What impact will mobile devices have on purchasing behaviour?
