WHAT IS C.A.P?

 

The Community Access Program is a government

of Canada initiative, administered by Industry Canada.  It aims to provide Canadians with affordable public access to the internet and the skills they need to use it effectively.

Federal, provincial, and territorial governments combined, offer CAP through: community groups, social agencies, libraries, schools, volunteer groups, and the business community.  CAP helps Canadians everywhere  take advantage of emerging opportunities in the new global knowledge-based economy.

Under CAP, public locations like schools, libraries, and community centres act as "on-ramps" to the Information Highway, and provide computer support and training.  CAP is the key component of the Government of "Canadians Connection Canadians" initiative, whose goal is to make Canada the most connected nation in the world.

CAP started in 1994 in rural communities with populations up to 50,000.  Then in December 1999, CAP was rolled out  to larger population centres of over 50,000.  By March 31, 2001 Industry Canada wants to establish public internet access sites in 10,000 rural, remote, and urban communities across Canada.

It's hoped that CAP sites will increasingly join together in networking opportunities, enabling them to pool resources and form networks to be able to offer even more to their communities.  CAP sites provide the general public, community organizations and small businesses with affordable access to the internet and related information technologies.
