OpenMedia.ca would be nothing without its community – that much is certain. Our entire job is to amplify your voices: to engage people in issues that affect our digital future, and to provide information, build online tools, and facilitate discussions that empower you to influence decisions that will affect your communications freedoms, rights, and interests.
Why do we do this? Among other things, it’s because we believe that citizens—you—are the key stakeholders in our digital future.
When it comes down to it, the value of the telecom industry is in serving the public—it’s meant to give us the means to participate in political and cultural discourse, in the digital economy and in society, and to connect us to one another. When it fails to do these things—when networks are closed and controlled, or made unaffordable or unavailable—it’s our progress that gets stunted.
