Digital album sales in Canada rose 9% in 2013

As reported by Music Week:

"Digital albums sales rose 9% year-on-year in Canada in 2013, while digital singles were up 2%.

That’s according to Nielsen SoundScan data, which shows an increase in digital album sales from 10.5 million in 2012 to 11.4 million last year, and digital singles moving from 114.3 million to 116.1 million.

The Canadian figures contrast to those in the US, where digital album sales dropped for the first time in 2013 as the overall albums sector declined by 8.4%."

We love our music up here, go Canada.
