Engagement

A Group Effort

Working with local communities, First Nations and local governments to ensure the project will meet the needs of the region now, and in the future.

The team will be engaging with communities, residents, First Nations, local governments, stakeholders and local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) throughout the project. Team members will be travelling across the region to share information, gather feedback, discuss the project and answer questions.

Feedback gathered will be used to inform the project as we work through the design, environmental approvals, and review processes.

People living in these rural and remote areas are strong, independent people, and we know that letting them choose their way is the best way.”
Honourable Navdeep Bains
Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
