The governments of Canada and Ontario are investing nearly $2.4 million in combined federal-provincial funding for Cogeco Connexion to bring high-speed internet access to up 299 homes, farms, and businesses in Campbellville, Ontario, outside of Milton.
The project is part of an existing partnership between Ontario and Canada. On July 29, 2021, the governments announced a Canada–Ontario broadband partnership to support large-scale, fibre-based projects that will provide high-speed Internet access to more than 280,000 households across the province, through a joint federal-provincial investment totalling more than $1.2 billion. The federal government’s ultimate goal is to give 98 per cent of Canadians have access to high-speed internet by 2026, and 100 per cent by 2030.
“[This latest funding] will help build a stronger Ontario for families, workers and businesses and is part of our government’s comprehensive plan to ensure that no community will be left behind in today’s digital world,” Parm Gill, Member of Provincial Parliament for Milton, said in a March 16 news release.
