Taking it to the street the Brantford Kinsmen QR Codes are using QR Codes to connect with consumers for their annual Ribfest. Not to be outdone the Brantford Community Church QR Code has not only a Sermon Outline Code but a Sunday Bulletin Code - talk about accessibility, although mobile devices should usually be turned off in church and mobile website content not take away from the sermon!

QR Code use in Cambridge, Ontario

Let's just say that as of the summer of 2012 widespread use of QR Codes and mobile websites hasn't come to this not so small town, although surprisingly the users to date are not necessarily your average early adopters. For example, Dipietro Meats has its own QR code … although it's on its website and when scanned leads to that same site which kind of defeats the purpose of using such a code in the first place to drive web traffic.
