The objective of the Canadian Internet Project (CIP) is to provide a comprehensive study and assessment of internet and online web use and non-use by Canadians (e.g.; internet, PDA’s, wireless devices). The guiding mandate of this research project is to investigate not only existing content on the web and usage patterns, but more importantly, the relationship between online technologies and cultural content and the attitudes, behaviour, and receptivity of the public to new services and forms of content.
