Community Investment Program

Building a Better Online Canada

The Internet—where Canadians connect, learn, share, conduct business and shape culture. Your .CA website funds programs that help build a better online Canada.

CIRA’s Community Investment Program gives back by funding innovative community projects to build a stronger, safer and more accessible Internet for all Canadians. The program has helped grow Canada’s capacity in media literacy, enabled non-profits to deliver online services and academic researchers to address emerging digital issues.

We have supported 78 innovative projects across Canada to date, for a total of $3.2 million.
