The Pretty Fly for a Wi-Fi project:
The Pretty Fly for a Wi-Fi project is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Support Fund and the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta. The project is also supported by TELUS to ensure that all residents of Grande Prairie and the surrounding area have the opportunity to discover online resources.
In November, 2021 we received the International Paper Community Grant to fund GPPL's mobile hotspots.
