Canada was born out of the need to connect. Confederation brought together our vast and sparsely inhabited country with the promise of connectivity. The Trans Canada Railway, completed in 1885, represented a significant infrastructure investment and became the first platform to connect our nation. Now over 125 years later, our rail and transit systems are in need of repair, and a new platform for connectivity is emerging as an imperative link for economic prosperity: bandwidth.
Inspired by “The Great Canadian Challenge” we are taking the train across Canada to advocate for investment in the physical and digital infrastructure that connects Canadians and strengthens our emerging digital economy.
We believe that strong municipalities are connected with sustainable transportation and reliable broadband. We want physical and digital connectivity to build a strong Canada.
The Campaign starts in Halifax May 21st with stops in 9 cities and ends in Vancouver at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ (FCM) Annual Conference May 29th. Follow and share our story.
