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.

Use the tools below to take our survey or tell us your stories! Your comments will help us decide how to improve telecommunications services in the Far North.

You may want to speak at the public hearing or participate in later stages of the consultation. To do so, you need to become a party.
