The telecommunications sector in Canada is highly developed, although it lags behind its peers in some of the most advanced countries. The industry is particularly important because of the country's huge distances, and it plays a vital role in linking the remote rural areas and the vast Arctic region to the rest of the country.

Wireless communication is popular and still expanding rapidly, but is not available in some of the more remote areas. Internet usage and broadband penetration are high, and the latter is still rising at a strong pace.

Costs are high by international standards. The OECD has ranked Canada as the world's third most expensive developed country in wireless services.
