Expanding Broadband to Rural Communities

In today’s digital economy, access to the internet is essential to create jobs, realize economic opportunities and connect Canadians to online services.

While Canada is one of the most connected nations in the world, critical gaps in broadband access still exist, particularly in rural and remote areas of the country.

Rural Canadians expect and deserve the same quality of life and access to services.

That’s why a re-elected Harper government will invest $200 million to support major new investments in broadband infrastructure in rural and remote communities.
