Connecting Canadians July 23rd, 2014

MooreJames_CPC[1]Canadians live in an increasingly connected digital age where access to the Internet is essential to create jobs, economic opportunities, and link Canadians to services, family and loved ones.

Our Conservative Government launched a new broadband program — Connecting Canadians — that will invest up to $305 million to provide high-speed Internet to an additional 280,000 Canadian households, primarily in rural and remote communities.

This will ensure that 98% of Canadian households have access to broadband Internet service!

Our investments will provide incentives for the private sector to invest in Broadband Internet services at speeds of 5 Mbps in areas of the country that previously did not have access, creating thousands of new investment opportunities.

Find out more about how this announcement affects your community by visiting http://www.ic.gc.ca/ConnectingCanadians. The maps on the Connecting Canadians website were developed to obtain feedback from everyday Canadians, such as yourself, to identify communities that are in the most need of access to high-speed internet.
