Here are 2021’s top trending Google search terms in Canada

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, starring Mississauga's very own Simu Liu was the top searched movie in Canada

Google has released its annual ‘Search Trends’ report that highlights what Canadians searched for this year. With the pandemic still lingering late into 2021, you better believe that some of the top search trends are related to COVID-19, vaccines and even Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB).

Last year’s search trends highlighted that Canadians were learning about COVID-19, number of cases and worst affected areas, whereas this year’s trends show that we have moved forward and are now chasing recovery by searching for information regarding vaccines and how we can leave the pandemic behind.

The resumption of sporting leagues around the world was prominently reflected in the search trends and so was the increasing popularity and curiosity of the Cryptocurrency market.
