Where do Canadians start their day?
Sympatico.ca logs 17.5M unique visitors

Canadians are turning to the Sympatico.ca portal in record numbers. This was proven with the release of its latest online audience numbers.

Sympatico.ca which has been operating as a distinct portal since September 1 st is Canada's online destination for general interest topics such as news, health, entertainment, music, sports and technology.

Sympatico.ca had exceptional performance in September with an audience of 17.5 million unique visitors in Canada through Sympatico.ca Network.

“We are very happy about these results, but even more so by the overall execution of our team and partners. From the planning to the transition itself, our team has demonstrated once again its know-how and expertise” says Gary Anderson, Bell’s Vice President responsible for Sympatico.ca.

One of Canada’s largest internet projects in 2009, the Sympatico.ca transition has been seamless for both users and advertisers. “Our primary focus, as always, is on the client experience, as evidenced by the ongoing growth in online content and services offered by Sympatico.ca to its advertisers,” added Gary Anderson.
