Bridging the Digital Divide with Diversity and Opportunity.
The Canadian Telecommunications Industry is changing quickly. New technology is shaping how connectivity will be delivered and new business models are challenging the existing order.
To this, we bring our vision of a new telecommunications industry foundationally different from what has come before. We are building a future where the infrastructure delivering broadband to indigenous communities is delivered, maintained, and owned by First Nations’ people.
3.2 billion people globally have access to the Internet. However incredible that may seem it is still fewer than half of the 7 billion-plus people on earth. And while Internet access was once a luxury, it is now becoming essential as the world’s commerce, educational institutions, health care, arts and entertainment all move online.
In the last 100 years since the advent of the radio, there has been no technology as transformative as the internet. It has not only fundamentally changed the way we live, work, learn and play but it has been an equalizing force in democratizing the world. Families can stay connected to their loved ones and the world opens to new information and resources for students to study and grow.

Broadband to Indigenous Communities Delivered, Maintained, and Owned First Nations’ Peoples
We are currently assessing individual requirements at the community level across the country. By engaging directly with the people we aim to serve, we want to help develop custom made solutions that meet the current and future needs of every community. Every First Nation involved will have an opportunity to be a stakeholder in the infrastructure and enjoy a share of revenues.
We have an opportunity to change the future for our people, for our children. Ownership, empowerment, capital investment, technology, long-term revenue streams and high paying tech jobs are all possible by working together to build today the world we will inherit tomorrow
Closing the digital divide by connecting remote and rural Canadians to broadband requires collaboration and innovation amongst all the stakeholders. It is crucial that communities, policymakers, and internet service providers take a holistic view to create a lasting future where everyone is included. That is why it is so important for us to engage with end-users and communities at the outset. Industry and government are pledging billions to move us toward our common goal however we believe real change at the community level working in partnership toward a common purpose.
