CIRA supports and invests in projects improving Canada’s internet. Here are two of our main initiatives:
Internet Exchange Points are hubs where independent networks can interconnect directly to one another, providing high-bandwidth and low-latency access at a lower cost than traditional transit. Doing this improves internet speed and efficiency and ensures data stays within Canada.
Our Internet Performance Test is a quick and easy internet connection test anyone can do at home or at work, intended to provide data for researchers to better understand and improve the Canadian internet.
