How to apply for EI. Canadians searching on Google

The top trending search in Canada this year was "how to apply for EI." 

Next up were queries about how to make hand sanitizer, apply for the CERB, make a face mask and cut your own hair.

Canadians also looked up how to use Zoom, make a sourdough starter, get tested for COVID-19 and make whipped coffee.

The last trending one was "how to make bread."

Of those popular searches, the CERB was the one that came up multiple times in Google's year in review.

While this wasn't included in Canada's trends, Americans were looking up "move to Canada" quite frantically during the U.S. election.
