Here are YouTube Canada’s most watched videos of the year

YouTube Canada has unveiled the top ten videos users watched on its service over the past year. The company has divided the videos into four separate categories: Canada’s Top Trending Videos of 2017,” “Canada’s Top Music Videos of 2017,” “Canada’s Top Movie Trailers of 2017,” and lastly YouTube made a list of top ten ads that we chose to watch with the list “YouTube Canada Ads Leaderboard 2017.”
