List of satellite-dependent communities

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).
