About Us


Broadband Communications North (BCN) is a not-for-profit incorporated entity, governed by a Board of Directors that is made up of representatives from tribal councils, territorial political organizations, and independent First Nation communities. BCN was incorporated in 2002 initially targeting 28 unserved and under-served communities in Manitoba's North. Since then, BCN has been actively improving and expanding its network to serve more communities to facilitate equitable high-speed broadband.

BCN now services over 62 rural, northern, and remote communities in Manitoba. The BCN network is one of the largest Indigenous community networks in Canada, spanning over 1000 km, encompassing a large portion of the province of Manitoba.

Services provided facilitate access to critical services, including health care (telehealth), education, justice, and governance. The BCN business model promotes growth of local businesses, who employ and train Indigenous people.
