Canada is one of the world's bigger music markets. Although ever present in the top 10, the country lost a couple of places last year, slipping from seventh to ninth.
- Canada was overtaken by China and Australia, with those two countries registering higher year-on-year growth rates in trade sales. Recorded-music consumption levels were up last year, but the increase in trade revenue was more modest.
- Although streaming income continued to rise, a big slump in sales of CD albums dented the overall market performance.
