Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2022

‹ Back
The 2022 Indigenous Connectivity Summit (ICS) marks a significant milestone this year.

Back as an in-person event this 24 to 28 October 2022, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, it will become a true community-driven event—being led by its new home organization: the Indigenous Connectivity Institute

The ICS is an annual event that brings together Indigenous community members and leaders, network operators, researchers, and policymakers with a common goal: connecting Indigenous communities to fast, affordable, and sustainable Internet.

The Internet Society and Connect Humanity, who created the Indigenous Connectivity Institute, will co-organize the 2022 ICS. Similar to past years, this event will feature community-driven presentations and panels, and participants will lead a workshop to craft policy recommendations to guide advocacy efforts for the coming year. The ICS will also include technical and policy advocacy training opportunities in the lead up to the main event. 

Register Now

The Indigenous Connectivity Summit is open to anyone across North America who cares about finding community-led solutions to improving access to fast, affordable, and reliable Internet connectivity in Indigenous communities. 

Registrations are open. Don’t miss out and register now! If you can’t join the ICS in Winnipeg, you can watch it live online. Register to join virtually.
