Nielsen SoundScan compiles weekly data on sales of digital singles from a comprehensive pool of Canadian retailers. Nielsen BDS compiles weekly data on spins of singles from 137 radio stations nationwide electronically monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These two charts are combined in the Canadian Hot 100 which is published by Billboard. Beginning 17 September 2014, Nielsen included streaming data from online services in determining the Hot 100.

Here we list all entries from the chart that are in whole or in part by Canadian artists.

The date of the chart corresponds to the release of Nielsen Music’s Canadian Update newsletter which is normally 10 days earlier than the date on the online Billboard chart.

We have used the artwork for the singles where we can. In the case where one doesn’t exist or is unavailable, we have used artwork for the album on which the song appears.
