Ottawa-Gatineau – Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)
Today, the CRTC is taking action to connect more rural, remote and Indigenous communities to the Internet.
The CRTC is launching a consultation to improve its Broadband Fund, which helps bring high-speed Internet and mobile services to communities across Canada.
The CRTC is proposing to make the application process faster and easier. The CRTC also wants to create a new funding stream for Indigenous communities and to fund projects that would increase the reliability of rural and remote networks.
A summary of the notice of consultation is also available in various Indigenous languages.
The CRTC is accepting comments until July 21, 2023. Comments can be submitted by:
