MTM 18+

MTM 18+ was the first Media Technology Monitor study to launch nearly 25 years ago, making it one of the longest running and most trusted sources of information in the area of technology ownership and use in Canada. Based on over 12,000 telephone interviews annually with Canadians 18 years and older (including a cell-phone only sample), MTM 18+ has spoken with more than 300,000 Canadians over the years resulting in the most accurate and comprehensive media technology tracking survey of its kind.

About ALL Canadians

Thanks to large sample sizes and a rigorous methodology, OTM 18+ clients have access to accurate and reliable data about ALL Canadians, allowing you to visualize data on a multitude of key demographic niches.

Large Sample Size Over Time

MTM 18+ data is based on interviews with over 12,000 Canadians, across two survey periods (Fall and Spring) with high response rates that exceed industry standards. The longevity of this study makes it unique in the industry, with nearly 25 years of data collection to build upon and over 300,000 respondents to help users understand changing media trends over time.

Two Language Markets

The MTM understands that Anglophones and Francophones consume existing and new media technology differently. To ensure quality data for both official language groups, MTM 18+ surveys 6000 Anglophones and 6000 Francophones annually including Francophones living outside of Quebec and Anglophones inside of Quebec (OLMC).

Canadians from Coast to Coast to Coast

In addition to surveying Canadians from across all provinces and regions, MTM 18+ is now the ONLY media study to include respondents from the Northern territories as well. Promotional efforts for the Northern sample were made available in Inuktitut and Cree for maximum impact and participation.
