Toronto Community Network

Community networks are networks collectively owned and managed by the community for non-profit and community purposes. They are constituted by collectives, indigenous communities or non-profit civil society organizations that exercise their right to communicate, under the principles of democratic participation of their members, equity, gender equality, diversity and plurality.

We are building a community network in Toronto alongside our collaborators. See our proposal brief and full in-draft proposal for details.
