Rural communities in Saskachewan will benefit from faster Internet

Canadians understand the importance of building communities. They have always invested in ways to better connect with each other—from the St. Lawrence Seaway to the national railroad system to the Trans-Canada Highway. Those investments now need to reflect the increasingly digital world.

That is why the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development, today announced funding of $11.2 million for FlexNetworks to bring new or improved high-speed Internet access and capacity to 21 rural communities in Saskatchewan. In addition to the Government of Canada’s investment, FlexNetworks is contributing $3.7 million, for a total investment of $14.9 million.
