Canadian Blockchain Census 2019

Canada is uniquely positioned to play a leading role in the global digital economy. To achieve and maintain such a position, it is imperative that we understand the size, scale and scope of our innovation ecosystems, and especially our burgeoning blockchain ecosystem.

Blockchain technology presents tremendous opportunity for positive impact, prosperity, and security to those countries, businesses, and communities that engage with the technology, learn to adopt it, and leverage it as they build next-generation technology solutions.

The purpose of this document is to inform and support Canada’s policy makers and business leaders in their efforts to grow and strengthen Canada’s innovation economy, and in particular, its digital asset and blockchain technology ecosystem. This report provides readers with the first quantitative and qualitative study of Canada’s national blockchain ecosystem. To ensure the highest quality of research and information collection and reporting, we commissioned the Blockchain Research Institute, in collaboration with Accenture, to create the blockchain ecosystem measurement survey, analyze the data, and prepare this important benchmark report.
