Why does NCF's work matter?

Today, more than ever, the Internet connects people. We need organisations like NCF to make sure is it accessible and affordable. Not only by offering the service, but by championing and be heard by the CRTC and other governing bodies. NCF also plays a role of educating people on digital literacy through its workshops.

How do you plan to use your skills to further NCF in its mission?

Data and mobile services started in Canada at the same time I started working in high-tech. I have always had an interest for those services and what they allow from a technological point of view, while keeping an eye on the affortability aspect.
