Telecom in the Far North

Do you live in the Far North? We want to hear from you!

Campaign by the CRTC

Everyone needs fast, affordable and reliable telecommunications services. It's necessary to participate in today’s economy and society. This is particularly true in underserved places like the Far North, which is home to many Indigenous communities.

The Canadian telecommunications system plays an important role in the reconciliation between Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous Canadians. We are looking to improve access to affordable, high-quality telecommunications services. These services help preserve, restore, and promote Indigenous languages and culture, and support some calls to action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

If you live in the Far North, please fill out the survey on or before October 6, 2022 to let us know about your Internet and other telecommunications (telecom) services, including how affordable your Internet is and the quality of service you are getting.
