Building a Better Online Canada
The Internet—where Canadians connect, learn, share, conduct business and shape culture.
CIRA is the steward of .CA – Canada’s online identifier. While our number one priority is the safe and secure management of Canada’s top-level domain, we also have a mandate to do good things for the Internet in Canada. In early 2014, CIRA launched the Community Investment Program.
The 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 built new infrastructure, 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.
By registering or renewing a .CA domain, you can help support this important work. Get your .CA today and help us build a better online Canada.
