Internet Services for Canadians

In just a few short years, the Internet has evolved into a multi-dimensional communications medium. It is now possible to use the Internet to watch TV and make phone calls. You can even call 9-1-1.

It is important that Canadians can connect to quality Internet services at affordable prices.

We strive to protect the safety and interests of Canadians by promoting and enforcing our regulations. This includes those relating to unsolicited email.
