Google Contextual Advertising in Canada


The name “Canada” comes from the word kanata, which means “village”/”settlement”. The country with an area of 9.9 million km2 is the second largest territory in the world, and has access to three oceans simultaneously: the Pacific, the Atlantic and the Arctic, which affects the developed maritime international trade. This is reflected in the country’s motto “A mari usque ad mare” – “From sea to sea”.

Most of the population of 38.6 million lives along a narrow strip near the US border in the south of the country i.e. more than 80% of the effective demand of the country will be concentrated in this region. This should be taken into account when analyzing marketing budgets and building an advertising strategy.
