The City of Toronto, through its ConnectTO program, is on a mission to bridge the digital divide and enhance free public Wi-Fi access for all Toronto residents and visitors. Currently, the city offers free Wi-Fi at over 100 locations. To further this initiative, the City is developing an expanded Wi-Fi strategy, and your input is crucial.  The Federation of Black Canadians (FBC) has partnered with this initiative to make sure Black Torontonians have a chance to be heard.

Join the Conversation: Expanded Free Public Wi-Fi Strategy Survey

As part of this effort, the City has launched an Expanded Free Public Wi-Fi Strategy Survey. This survey is designed to gather feedback from the community to shape the future of Wi-Fi availability in Toronto.
