All Canadians deserve resilient and reliable high-speed internet access to connect them to what matters most. This requires a strong collaboration between the public and private sector. In particular, a stable regulatory environment and policies that balance investment with fair competition.

Here’s what you should know

New policy and regulation has put Canada at risk of failing to ensure that every Canadian has access to resilient and reliable high-speed internet access.

You can help make sure that there are policies in place to give Canadians access to the digital tools they need to succeed.

Maintain balance for Canadians

We have asked the CRTC to make sure new regulation balances network investment, and competition for all Canadians.

Share clear investment plans

Canada is not on track to meet its 2030 goal of connecting 100% of Canadians to high-speed internet. The 2023 Auditor General report found that there are still not enough federal dollars to reach this target.

Show Canadians the outcomes

Canadian network operators invest billions more than peer nations. Of all OECD countries, Canada is third when it comes to telecom network investments. In fact, in 2018 Canada invested 84% more than the average OECD nation (OECD, 2023).
