 The Final Mile Rural Community Program provided a total of $6,612,170 in funding to support 27 projects to enable high-speed Internet access to unserviced locations in rural Alberta.

Under the Final Mile Rural Community Program, municipalities, First Nations and Metis Settlements were eligible to apply for a grant that covered up to 75 per cent of eligible Internet infrastructure expenses such as towers, fibre optic cable, wireless equipment, installation costs, and radio licence fees. Approved projects expand high-speed Internet access to unserviced areas or address gaps in coverage.

The Final Mile Rural Community Program began as one component of the Final Mile Rural Connectivity Initiative - a joint effort between Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development and Service Alberta to reach a goal of 98 per cent high-speed Internet coverage to Albertans.
