Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Rural communities play an important role in Canada’s economy;
  • Adequate access to high-speed Internet is essential to the vitality of rural communities;
  • The CRTC declared that high-speed Internet is an essential service;
  • The CRTC has committed to spending $750 million to address the lack of rural broadband network coverage; and
  • The CRTC has set targets for download speeds of 50 Mbps and upload speeds of 10 Mbps for broadband services;
We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
(1) Ensure that the $750 million allocated to the CRTC to achieve the set targets is properly allocated to the communities that need it most;
(2) Ensure the regional distribution of funds; and
(3) Allocate additional funding to provide access and improve high-speed Internet in rural areas.
