Connect to Innovate

Launched on December 15, 2016 the federal government’s Connect to Innovate program will invest up to $500 million by 2021 to bring high-speed Internet to rural and remote communities in Canada.

This program will support new "backbone" infrastructure to connect institutions like schools and hospitals with a portion of funding for upgrades and "last-mile" infrastructure to households and businesses.

The deadline for submissions is March 13, 2017.  For further details on eligibility, costs supported by the program, and cost-sharing requirements please review the program details.
