Providing Canadians a proactive voice on Internet issues. We advocate for end users providing them a voice in policies and technologies to improve the choice, access and quality of Internet across Canada. Our goal is to promote the mission of the global Internet Society in a Canadian context. We invite all Canadians to help us accomplish this. Please join the Internet Society and the Canada Chapter. Be informed. Be engaged. Be heard. If you are interested in getting involved, please email Franca Palazzo at firstname.lastname@example.org
