Digital Divides and the 'First Mile': Framing First Nations Broadband Development in Canada [International Indigenous Policy Journal]

International Indigenous Policy Journal (IIPJ)
Year of publication: 

"Across Canada, rural and remote First Nations face a significant 'digital divide'. As self-determining autonomous nations in Canada, these communities are building broadband systems to deliver public services to their members and residents. To address this challenge, First Nations are working towards a variety of innovative, locally driven broadband development initiatives. This paper contributes a theoretical discussion that frames our understanding of these initiatives by drawing on the paradigm of the 'First Mile' (Paisley & Richardson, 1998).
