CIRA’s goal is to build a trusted internet for Canadians.
While our number one priority is the safe and secure management of .CA, Canada’s top-level domain, we also have a mandate to do good things for the internet in Canada.
We give back by investing in projects that support the development of a resilient, secure and trusted internet for all Canadians. We take an active leadership role in developing the internet community in Canada and globally. We also recognize there are many Canadians who lack the opportunity to get online or the skills to do so safely and effectively.
That’s why we launched the Community Investment Program.
CIRA gives back by funding innovative community projects to build a stronger, safer and more accessible internet for all Canadians.
The program has:
- Built new infrastructure
- Helped grow Canada’s capacity in digital literacy
- Enabled non-profits and academic researchers to address emerging digital issues.
CIRA funds innovative community internet projects across Canada. We are accepting grant applications for the next round of funding January 15 – February 25, 2020.
