Everyday, Canadians depend on fast and reliable Internet, making access to broadband services essential for every community. FCM has published this guide, in partnership with Telesat, to help unserved and underserved communities establish connectivity to reliable high-speed Internet.

There is an ongoing gap in access to connectivity with only 41% of rural households and about 25% of Indigenous communities having access to high quality, reliable broadband internet services.

This guide allows municipalities to start bridging the digital divide within Canada.
