As the U.S. Hot 100 for the United States are also the most successful 100 songs each week in Canada from an evaluation of sales and airplay numbers determined. For this, the official download sales figures from Nielsen SoundScan and radio charts by Nielsen BDS are combined. The single sales, which - unlike in Europe - in North America play almost no role will not be considered.

The Canadian Hot 100, the first charts that Billboard has created even for a country outside the United States. On 7 June 2007 there was the first edition with the first number -one hit Umbrella by Rihanna and Jay -Z. The dating of the charts is analogous to the U.S. Hot 100, the charts published Thursdays therefore bear the date of Saturday the following week (ie publication date plus nine days ).

The Canadian Hot 100 is not on behalf of the Music Canada ( formerly CRIA Canadian Recording Industry Association ), the Canadian representative of IFPI created. However, they are often cited as the CRIA long time continued the single sales charts, but always had less significance in the 1990s after the collapse of the single market. Airplay and later download charts were indeed published separately, but only since May 2011 are the Top 20 Digital Tracks the official Canadian singles charts.
