I am the CEO of a non profit corporation (CIPA inc.) that aim to contribute to the development of rural communities accross Canada by way of a strategic use of technologies. With the many strategic partnerships built in the pass 10 years, CIPA delivered numerous development projects that contributed directly to digital economy in Canada. One of our project is CIPA's web For All Initiative with the collaboration of Industry Canada and many CAP sites accross Canada. Since 2004, this yearly initiative provided to more than 1,800 Canadians with disabilities, elderly, etc., a facilitated access to IT by way of adaptated workstations put in place in CAP sites located in Canadian rurality. Furthermore, this Initiative creates jobs directly in regions of Canada that need it the most. It is important that Industry Canada continue to support and developp the CAP, the CAP YI and the CAP sites. It is also important that Industry Canada consider supporting more concretely CIPA's Web For All Initiative in order to permit us to reach more Canadians. There is still a lot of work to do in rural Canada.
