The Regional Connectivity Plan Funding stream of the Connecting British Columbia program is closed. Funds were available to help internet service providers and regional and local governments connect people in rural and Indigenous communities with high-speed internet.
As part of the Program, the Regional Connectivity Plan Funding (“Funding”) supports the development of regional connectivity infrastructure plans. The Funding is intended to support eligible applicants with the technical infrastructure assessment of current and proposed networks in a regional connectivity plan.
This funding program accepts and reviews applications on a first come, first serve basis until all available funds are committed.
