Improving Connectivity in Rural and Indigenous Communities

The internet may feel like it’s everywhere, but many rural and indigenous communities have yet to enjoy reliable access. The $5.6-million Whistler-to-Cache Creek project finally brings high-speed internet and other broadband services to the community of Lillooet, the Lil’wat Nation and the Ts’zil Learning Centre. The fibre-optic line was made possible thanks to grants and contributions from B.C. and federal government programs, as well as Shaw Communications.
