About Indigenous Connectivity Summit

Connecting Indigenous Communities

The Indigenous Connectivity Summit is a unique event that focuses on ensuring Indigenous communities can connect themselves to fast, affordable and sustainable Internet. Themed on connecting the last 1,000 miles, this year’s event in Inuvik, Northwest Territories will highlight unique northern connectivity challenges and showcase success stories of Community Networks around the globe to help inspire solutions to improve Internet access for all. We’ll also explore themes including community development and sustainability in a two-day series of panels, presentations and discussions.

The 2018 Indigenous Connectivity Summit is an initiative of the Internet Society, University of Alberta, First Mile Connectivity Consortium, the Town of Inuvik, and Inuvialuit Regional Corporation.
