First Nations SchoolNet

First Nations SchoolNet connects First Nations students and schools to the world.

Internet access through the First Nations SchoolNet program has opened the doors to educational, economic, personal and professional opportunities for First Nations students and teachers on reserve.

All schools on reserve have access to the internet with close to 50 percent connected by a high speed digital telephone line.

Access means students can connect and learn from each other, develop new skills, and participate in national and international events.

It also means that many federal services are brought into communities thanks to  SchoolNet.

First Nations SchoolNet was established by the Government of Canada in 1996 to provide Internet access, computer equipment and technical support to First Nations schools on reserves across Canada.

Six non-profit First Nations SchoolNet Regional Management Organizations deliver the program in their respective region, working with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada.
