Industry Canada Broadband Economic Impact Study

This Report provides information on the economic impacts of broadband access and usage in two small Canadian communities, located in Manitoba and Nova Scotia. The information was gathered primarily from a multiple round of basic telephone surveys followed up by a smaller series of more detailed interviews. A small workshop was held in Parrsboro NS to gain greater depth into the community and business impacts of acquiring broadband access. Remoteness and cost prevented the study team from doing a similar workshop in Churchill MB.
