Funding Available for Rural/Remote Broadband

The federal government’s new Connect to Innovate program is offering funding to bring high-speed Internet to rural and remote communities across Canada. The program, operated by Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada, is planning to invest up to $500 million in broadband projects across the country. Project funding will focus on building new backbone infrastructure in communities to provide connections to public sector institutions, like schools, hospitals and libraries, as well as providing funding for “last-mile” infrastructure projects to households and businesses. Applications will open on January 16th, 2017 and close on March 13th.
