The Implications of Connectivity for Equity and Education

Tech Manitoba is pleased to release the phase one report on the status of connectivity in the Province of Manitoba and its implications on education and quality of life. This report is intended to provide a baseline as to the current state of affairs and to pave the way for more detailed research.

This study explores the “digital divide” between urban regions with high-level broadband access and rural and remote regions with poor or no access. It also provides a snapshot of broadband connectivity in Canada, Canada’s official broadband aspirations, and the initiatives to digitize rural and northern communities.

Thank you to the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) for their expertise, and patience throughout the researching and writing of this report. This was a very collaborative effort with support from educators and industry professionals from across Manitoba and during an unprecedented time in history.

For more information on the study read the Report Overview or Full Report.
