Our principles


The internet is premised on openness

An open internet is democratic, competitive and innovative


The internet is facing a crisis of trust that is affecting our culture, economy and democracy

A trusted internet is private, safe and secure


The internet should belong to the people who use it, not to a small set of concentrated interests

A people-centered internet is accessible, transparent and empowering

Community engagement

We work with the internet community to advance a trusted internet in Canada and abroad. Our partners help us advance a vision of the internet that is open, trusted and people-centered through different community-building and advocacy activities.

Between now and the end of 2025, several dialogues on the future of global internet governance will take place.
