The Community Investment Program gives back by funding innovative community projects to build a stronger, safer and more accessible Internet for all Canadians. The program has built new infrastructure, helped grow Canada’s capacity in media literacy, enabled non-profits to deliver online services and academic researchers to address emerging digital issues.

The program is open to organizations recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency as registered charities, not-for-profit organizations, and academics and researchers affiliated with a Canadian university. The application deadline is 28 February, 2018.

The program funds innovative projects that support the development and/or enhancement of the internet for the benefit of all Canadians. Some examples include Community access to the internet, internet tools, and/or devices; Online services for vulnerable or disadvantaged groups; (these online services must create efficiencies) and Digital literacy and/or web safety.
