For Immediate Release
MP Serré encourages Nickel Belt - Greater Sudbury to participate in a consultation on telecommunication services.
"The Government of Canada is making sure that when it comes to telecom services, all Canadians benefit from improved quality, coverage and price."
NICKEL BELT / GREATER SUDBURY - Marc Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt, current Chair of the National Rural Caucus and past Chair and current member of the Northern Ontario Caucus, is proud that the federal government announced a series of measures to improve telecom services for Canadians. “This is a topic that has been a priority of mine since taking office in 2015. I have had countless meetings and conversations with the private sector, stakeholders, municipalities and constituents imploring the need for broadband and high-speed internet services for all of Northern Ontario residents, including in small municipalities and isolated First Nations communities that need it most to ensure their long-term survival.” said Serré.
“High-speed Internet access is no longer a luxury; it is a key driver for improving Canadians’ economic and social well-being. Internet access can help residents connect with the services they need, access medical help and fully participate in the digital economy.” he continued.
