Once again, Inukshuk Wireless is calling for proposals for its learning plan, part of its licensing agreement with Industry Canada. Project proposals, by province, can be submitted in two categories:
An innovative and creative project to develop multimedia and feature rich learning content, applications or learning environments for Canadaâ€™s learning communities;
A Connectivity Project which results in the provision of wireless broadband internet access to un-served or underserved communities in the region. The goal of the connectivity projects is to bring wireless broadband connectivity to both public and private sector customers, including learning organizations.
The deadline for submissions is 8 March 2007 and details are available on the Inukshuk website. Funding available is different for each province. For example, New Brunswick’s envelope this year is $59,883 while Nova Scotia’s is $75,685.
