Announced Connect to Innovate projects

From: Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada

The Connect to Innovate program will invest $500 million in rural and remote communities across Canada, with a focus on supporting new backbone infrastructure projects that connect public institutions like schools, hospitals and First Nation band offices. A portion of funding is also available for backbone infrastructure upgrades and last-mile projects connecting underserved households and businesses currently lacking service at speeds of 5 Megabits per second (Mbps).

Budget 2019  announced additional funds to top up the Connect to Innovate (CTI) program, allowing even more Canadians to benefit from enhanced Internet access. The CTI top-up funding will draw from an existing and already assessed pool of high quality, but not yet selected, CTI applications. Projects selected under the CTI program will continue to be announced during the summer of 2019.
