TORONTO — The face of Silicon Valley North is a 28-year-old male graduate of a Canadian university, who makes between $40,000 and $80,000 per year and has been employed by a digital, advertising or marketing agency for between one and three years.

Canada’s digital industries are mainly small businesses, most of which are less than eight years old, have eschewed government financing and expect revenue to increase in the next year, according to the Pixel to Product research study, a new survey that attempts to paint an accurate portrait of Canada’s digital media industry.

The results of the survey, which polled more than 200 Canadian companies and 1,050 individuals during the past seven months, will be presented Wednesday at the annual Mesh technology conference in Toronto. Last year, Pixel to Product was awarded a $40,000 research grant from digital experience agency Teehan Lax to conduct the survey.

Fuelled by the growth of the mobile application, digital marketing and social media industries, Canada has quickly evolved into a hotbed of technology innovation, and the report represents the most complete snapshot to date of the country’s emerging digital economy.
