Ottawa Is Canada’s Most Uber-friendly City – StatsCan

According to recent data from StatsCan, the sharing economy is a rapidly growing sector across the country. The report, released in late February, shows that 7% of Canadian adults have used a ride sharing service (like Uber) and 4.2% had used an AirBnB-like service between October of 2015 and November of 2016. The data also revealed that Ottawa is Canada’s most Uber-friendly city. 17.6% of adults living in Ottawa had used Uber or another ride-sharing service during the survey period. Toronto came in second, at 14.8% cent, and Edmonton was third, at 9.8%. Which is pretty remarkable, considering Uber, wasn’t legally allowed to operate in Ottawa until October of 2016. So it seems many local residents have no hesitation using an App to hail a ride.
