Below, we have left our original Date.ca review for your continued reading. This review received its last major update on July 17, 2009.


Date.ca is one of Canada's premier online personals service. With thousands of members online at any given time, it doesn't get easier to meet new Canadian singles in your area. Date.ca is made up of a fun, high-quality group of singles from all walks of life, all backgrounds, all professions and all ages, who are living life to its fullest and looking for others to share their experiences with.

The new “Click Alert” option available by each profile picture allows Date.ca to introduce you to members you think you'd connect with and who feel the same about you. It's fun and easy, and everyone can participate. Just look for “Click!” in members' profiles and tell Date.ca what you think by picking yes, maybe or no. When two of you click yes, Date. ca will introduce you with a Click! Alert.

Their secure online server makes connecting at Date.ca anonymous and safe, so you're free to sit back, relax and meet people from the comfort of your home or office.

Positive Features of Date.ca

  • Create a basic profile in minutes, for free. This allows you to search the site’s member database for matches in your area. When you find some compatible matches, you can then go on and create a more detailed profile. I found several hundred matches in most of the medium size cities I searched for in Canada (based on certain age ranges and specific genders).
  • Pay in Canadian dollars
  • Member profiles show when they were last updated as well as when the member was last online
  • Search for members within 1.6 km (or one mile) from you
  • Customer care staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Well-balanced number of men and women members

Negative Features of Date.ca

  • On the first page of “Create Your Profile,” it is suggested that you uncheck the box for "I agree to receive email updates & announcements from qualified partners"
