Demand a National Broadband Strategy

DEMAND A NATIONAL BROADBAND STRATEGY

Tell Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly and Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains: We desperately need a national broadband strategy so that ordinary Canadians can actually afford to get online.
Protect encryption

5 eyes: Save Encryption

Ministers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the U.S. have gone public with their plans for a huge attack on our personal security. We must stop these attacks on privacy.
No Free Trade Without a Free Internet

No Free Trade Without a Free Internet

We need to make sure that our voices are as loud as possible from the very beginning of this process: we cannot let NAFTA sacrifice our digital rights.
Lower my cellphone bill

LOWER MY CELLPHONE BILL

Tell the CRTC about your struggles with high cellphone bills and we’ll submit them to the public record.
No Social for U.S. Visas

No Social Media for U.S. Visas

New rules are forcing people to submit their social media information to obtain U.S. visas. Send an urgent fax to key representatives to stop this.
NAFTA: Don't Trade Away Our Digital Rights

NAFTA: Don’t trade away our digital rights

Use the form below to ensure the government hears from you: don’t let NAFTA undermine our digital rights!
C-51: MESSAGE YOUR MP

C-51: MESSAGE YOUR MP

Ask your MP to take action to secure privacy protections before C-51 reforms become law!
Community Broadband First!

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. Now, the CRTC is asking Canadians how that $750 million should be spent. Tell the CRTC: Ensure broadband funding goes to community-driven initiatives instead of filling Big Telecom’s deep pockets.

Let's Send The TPP Back To Its Grave

Let's Send The TPP Back To Its Grave

IT’S BACK: Unelected TPP officials are holding secret talks to bring their dangerous Internet censorship deal back from the dead. Tell Global Affairs Minister Freeland and Trade Minister Champagne: “Send the TPP back to its grave. It’s time to formally withdraw Canada from the deal and ensure any future trade talks are shaped by citizens every step of the way.”
Stingrays

Put a stop to invasive Stingray surveillance

Stingrays (also known as “IMSI-catchers”) are surveillance devices that can suck up sensitive, personal info in our cell phones. Calls, emails, and texts – our most intimate moments. We know they’re being used in countries including the U.S. and Australia, and other governments are fighting to keep their use a secret. We must rein this in. 
Stop undermining indie ISPs

Stop undermining small Internet service providers​

Indie Internet providers can't compete on a level playing field with Big Telecom calling the shots. Speak out now to support more choice in Canada’s Internet service markets.
Fight for our Privacy!

Fight for our privacy!

It’s outrageous that Canadians have almost zero protection for their personal data when it’s shared with the U.S. Add your name to our letter to key ministers to demand that they take action to fight for our privacy!

Historic campaigns

Our Canadian campaigns that made history.

Stop the Meter

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.
Stop Spying

Stop Spying

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.
