List of satellite-dependent communities

Important note!
A map of satellite-dependent communities based on data as of December 2018, will be published with the Broadband Fund call for applications. This update to 2014 list of satellite-dependent communities maps below will be based on information submitted by telecommunications service providers in the last request for information.

The 2014 Satellite Inquiry Report identified a list of the various satellite-dependent communities in Canada. Satellite-dependent communities are defined as communities that have no connection to terrestrially-based telecommunications facilities for connection to the public switched telephone network and/or the Internet, and that relies on satellite transport to receive one or more telecommunications services (such as voice, wireless [both fixed and mobile], and Internet services).
