We’ve made a number of recent announcements about what we are doing to promote a trusted internet and support our local community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here they are, all in one place.
It goes without saying that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything. In Canada, efforts to curb the spread of the virus have significantly shifted the day-to-day routines of internet users and the operations of businesses, schools, public institutions, and organizations like CIRA.
While widespread social distancing, school closures, and work from home have created unprecedented disruption, it has also created opportunities for businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and everyday citizens to step up and help those in need.
As a technology not-for-profit with a mission to establish a trusted internet for Canadians, CIRA is leveraging its resources, products and services to help people through this pandemic. Over the last several weeks, we’ve made a number of announcements about what we are doing to promote a trusted internet for Canadians and support our local community here in Ottawa.
