About the data
This report is created using a combination of .CA Registry data, third-party vendors, and publicly available data.
.CA Registry data is accumulated through the collection of Registrant data. A Registrant is defined as any person who registers a .CA domain name with CIRA. This information is presented anonymously and in aggregate within this report.
Third-party vendor data is provided to CIRA through proprietary agreements and is presented anonymously and in aggregate within this report.
Links to all publicly available data are provided within the report.
Provincial index figures are estimations. They are calculated using Statistics Canada estimates for provincial populations and the approximate number of domains per province at the time of the report’s release.
Provincial populations are estimated by Statistics Canada. For more information on Statistics Canada methodology, please visit their website.
Number of domains is rounded to the nearest thousand to account for changes in the data. This data represents an approximation of the current number of domains in each province.
Domain status and CMS usage is considered to be an estimation of the approximate percentage of domains associated with each category. Domain status data is considered to be in “beta” and information may be subject to change in later reports. This information is provided through our third-party vendor, DataProvider.
