Ontario Chamber of Commerce Responds To The Federal Budget

Earlier this week, the Government of Canada released the 2016 Federal Budget, which included an impressive broadband infrastructure investment. This investment is in direct response to the OCC's advocacy leadership, which called for the federal government to invest in the future of the digital economy by increasing broadband access for rural and suburban Ontarians. The OCC welcomes the historic investment of $500 million over five years for a new program to extend and enhance this type of broadband service.
