PicodiFebruary 9, 2023 analysts checked the statistics of searches related to finding a significant other online and created a ranking of the most online provinces.

Where in Canada is it easier to find love online?

After looking closely at the data of the most popular search engine in Canada, we found out that citizens of Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are most likely to find their significant other online. Internet users visit dating websites in those provinces more frequently than the country average.

On the other hand, citizens of Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and Nunavut look for love online the least. In those provinces, finding a significant other offline – in the street, at work or at social parties – is most likely more prevalent.

This is what the ranking of all provinces looks like:
