Community Broadband First!
Last December, the CRTC ruled that high-quality Internet should be a basic service for all Canadians and created a $750 million fund to support broadband projects in rural, underserved, and unserved areas.

Stop the Meter
The Stop the Meter campaign was one of the earliest campaigns our organization took on — and, for many Canadians, it was the first time they ever heard of OpenMedia. Have a look back at how we successfully fought plans to introduce a pay meter on the Internet services of Canadians.
Take a look back at our Stop Spying campaign against Bill C-30, an invasive piece of online spying legislation introduced by Canada's former Conservative federal government. We successfully rallied over 150,000 people from right across Canada to defeat this bill.
