Canada #2 Globally When It Comes To Technology Adoption, But Falling Behind In Other Areas: Cisco

Today, Cisco released its 2019 Global Digital Readiness Index, measuring the digital readiness of 141 countries across seven areas, including business & government investment, technology adoption and technology infrastructure.

So how does Canada stack up? Canada ranked second in the world for Technology Adoption, coming behind only the U.S., but is falling behind in Ease of Doing Business (18th), tech infrastructure (18th), Business & Government Investment (20th) and Startup Environment (26th).

The strongest components of digital readiness include: “Basic Needs,” “Human Capital,” and “Technology Infrastructure.” In general, improvements in these three components will have the most impact overall on a country’s level of digital readiness.

You can find a whitepaper detailing the index here and the interactive map here.
