Canadians ordered $15.1 billion in goods and services on the internet last year, up from $12.8 billion in 2007.

Statistics Canada attributed the increase to a rise in the number of online shoppers and a higher volume of orders.

The agency said 39 per cent of Canadians aged 16 and over used the internet to place more than 95 million orders in 2009 — up from 32 per cent and 70 million orders in 2007, when the survey was last conducted.
