In the last year, people in Canada have discovered that the online world offers so many different ways of entertainment, that it would take us months, if not years to give them all a go.
Ever since the pandemic started, Canadians were forced to find new ways to entertain themselves while spending time indoors. And although the pandemic restrictions are not as strict as they used to be, people have seen the potential of online entertainment, so it became the favourite pastime of thousands of new online dwellers.
The online entertainment industry flourished in the last year, in Canada and the rest of the world. Canadians are now more inclined towards learning platforms than actual classrooms. Moreover, even if they have some of the most beautiful land-based casinos in the world, nowadays they will more likely play their favourite casino game online.

Watching movies and TV shows on streaming platforms
Streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Disney+ have had a major breakthrough over the past couple of years. An in 2021 they are still one of the most popular ways of entertainment online. A while ago, people could watch their favourite movies only by going to the movies or waiting for a broadcasting company to air it on their channel. Nowadays, streaming platforms have their own productions, so some movies and shows can be watched exclusively via these services. Streaming platforms offer such a wide choice of things to watch that no matter how much you tried, you could never watch everything that they have in store.

What is more, Canada has some of the most picturesque casinos in the world. However, the stay-at-home measures, made many Canadians try the online version of their favourite activity. Since online casinos are more accessible and offer incredible welcome bonuses for new players, Canadians had the opportunity to explore all the benefits from playing at online gambling platforms.
