McGuinty Government Supports Local Infrastructure Project

Ontario is delivering high-speed internet to the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville through the Rural Connections Broadband Program. 

Upon its completion, this project will provide 3,272 residents, 239 local businesses and 2 community centres with the infrastructure needed to access high-speed internet.

Investing in local broadband infrastructure is part of the Open Ontario Plan to create jobs and opportunities for rural Ontario.
