“…we knew the internet had the power to bring us closer to our loved ones.”

Over the past 25 years, our company has grown and evolved with the times, but our roots have always guided everything we do.

That means treating our customers like neighbours, with kindness, respect and honesty. It means giving you fast internet you can rely on today, while reimagining our technology for tomorrow. But, it also means giving back to our community in meaningful and inclusive ways.

You may have seen our friendly faces at local events, sponsoring sports teams or volunteering with students. That’s because investing in Albertans is an integral part of our culture. We take a strategic approach to community investment, following pillars that guide us toward the most impact.

This book is an invitation to rural Albertans. Here, you can learn about our guiding values, strategic partnerships and event sponsorships. If you believe your organization could benefit from our support, be sure to review the eligibility criteria and apply on our website.

Because, now more than ever, we need to nurture our communities, so we can all thrive together.
