Casting an Open Net
A Leading-Edge Approach to Canada's Digital Future
The Internet’s open architecture has become central to the success of our economy, our culture, and our society. Casting An Open Net is the first comprehensive report that establishes the need for the principle of openness to guide digital policy in Canada. The report lays out a well-researched plan for an open and affordable Internet—an action plan for a connected Canada.
Dive into the Report:
An Action Plan for a Connected Canada
Based on our findings, we lay out a clear, concise, and principled plan for Canada’s digital future.
Canadian Views on the Open Internet
We examine public opinion research, analyse submissions to the CRTC, and gather citizen input from online and offline consultations.
The Technical Case for Openness
There is no technical reason for restricting access to legal online services. We aren’t facing a “bandwidth crisis,” we’re facing problems produced by a dysfunctional market.
The Open Internet: International Comparisons
Canadians pay nearly twice as much for Internet access as our global counterparts. To remain globally competitive, Canada must learn from successes abroad.
Canadian Culture on the Open Internet
The best way to support and promote Canadian culture in the 21st century is to overcome Canada’s current Internet openness and access deficit.
