From its launch in mid-2007 to the present time, we have ranked the 40 biggest hits by domestic artists on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 using a points system. Total points were determined by subtracting each weekly chart position from 101 and then totalling the results. We have not included songs that were already on the Hot 100 when it launched. We have also excluded songs currently on the chart. Included are Canadian artist songs whether the Canadian was the main, co-credited, or featured artist.
The Hot 100 is a combination of success on radio as well as digital downloads from the public, all within Canada. The chart below also includes the peak chart position achieved, date the peak was reached, and the total number of weeks the song spent on the charts. Those that reached #1 have the peak in a red box. Those that spent at least one full year (52 weeks) have a yellow box. Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” reigns supreme both in terms of points and weeks spend on the Hot 100 (74 weeks, highlighted in an orange box).
