A recent article in a Statistics Canada publication finds that more people are working from home.

Between 1995 and 2000, the number of Canadian workers working from home increased by one per cent from 2.1 million to 2.8 million (17 per cent of the total workforce). That 2.8 million is divided equally between employees and self-employed workers, representing ten per cent of the employed population and half of the self-employed.
