Comment Nous Travaillons

Nous tissons des liens communautaires.

Le Libertel de la capitale nationale est un organisme local et sans but lucratif qui offre une solution de rechange aux fournisseurs Internet commerciaux. Depuis 1992, nous avons branché plus de 100 000 membres à la Toile.

Nous croyons que l’accès à Internet devrait être à la portée de tous et toutes dans la région. Les citoyens et citoyennes devraient pouvoir obtenir une connexion abordable et de haute qualité, savoir comment naviguer en ligne, et s’y sentir en sécurité.

NCF was founded in 1992, several years before the existence of the World Wide Web and web browsers. Back then, people used telephone dial-up modems to connect to NCF's computers at Carleton University. They were presented with a text-based menu, from which they could select options (much like clicking on a web link today). Finally a page of text would be displayed or a service, such as an email or newsgroup reader, would be started.

Our members elect the Board of Directors, who chart the strategic direction of NCF and oversee management. Daily operations are carried out by our staff and volunteers.
