Hello daryls-ga,

The  Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
(CRTC)  provides the information you?re asking about in the
Broadcasting Policy Monitoring Report 2005.

From Table 6.1: Personal computer ownership rates of Canadian households

1998 / 1999 / 2000 / 2001 / 2002 / 2003 / 2004 /  2004
49%  /  53% / 55%  /  63% /  64% /  64% /  68% /   71%
