OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to remind those applying for the Universal Broadband Fund that the deadline is March 15, 2021.
The Universal Broadband Fund has been designed to fund broadband infrastructure projects that will bring high-speed Internet at 50/10 Megabits per second (Mbps) to rural and remote communities.
In addition to funding a diversity of high-speed Internet projects to connect Canadians, there is:
• Up to $50 million available to support mobile Internet projects that primarily benefit Indigenous peoples, including projects along highways and roads where mobile connectivity is lacking.
• Up to $750 million available for large impact projects.
• Up to $150 million available as part of our Rapid Response Stream.
