Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2019

‹ Back

When it comes to connecting communities, we need everyone on board. There are more than 20 million people in North America who lack access to fast, affordable and reliable Internet, many of which live in regions that include Indigenous populations.

Indigenous Connectivity Summit sponsors get a unique opportunity to support and connect with more than 200 Indigenous leaders, community network operators, Internet service providers, researchers and policy makers working to close the digital divide in North America.

Here’s what past sponsors have to say:

Indigenous populations often tend to be the most isolated from the reach of the Internet … Google’s primary objective is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. We are happy to have been able to facilitate serious discussions about the way forward in Inuvik.

— Vint Cerf, Google

Great forum to connect with key individuals and listen to the challenges our nation’s Indigenous communities face, understand their priorities and consult with them on solutions.

— Michele Beck, Telesat
