Welcome to First Nations


Launch of the First Nations Innovation Research Project
Researching and Celebrating Achievements with Information and Communications Technologies


Remote and rural First Nation communities are using broadband networks and information and communications technologies (ICT) in many innovative ways – to support e-health, e-learning, e-business, e-administration and many other applications and services. Community members use ICT to access services online and communicate with people everywhere.

A team of First Nation organizations and researchers is launching the First Nations Innovation project to study and celebrate these achievements. We recognize the value of research to support and develop understanding, evidence-based policy and transformative change. The partners are Keewaytinook Okimakanak in Ontario, the First Nations Education Council in Quebec, Atlantic Canada’s First Nation Help Desk / Mi'kmaw Kina'matnewey and the University of New Brunswick.
