Canada Jumps on the Broadband Stimulus Train

Taking a page from the Obama Administration’s Broadband Stimulus Program, Canada is also jumping into the broadband stimulus fray. Industry Canada, a government-led agency responsible for economic development and innovation, has issued a call-for-applications for the government’s “Broadband Canada: Connecting Rural Canadians” initiative. Launched in July, this initiative is part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan, which gives $225 million to Industry Canada for the development and implementation of a strategy to extend and improve broadband coverage.
