Top 50 Canadian Sites of March 2000

Drawn from a sample of 2,000 home-based Internet users in Canada, PC Data Online found the 50 most popular sites visited by Canadians, and the 50 most popular Canadian sites visited by Canadians in the month of March 2000.

Much like the top sites in the US, portal sites top the lists, but Canadian users seem to use the Internet as a medium through which to get information on social and human services. As a result of this, government sites, which rarely make the top sites in the US are prominently featured in the lists of the top Canadian sites.
