The Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce has been working with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce to address the growing need for broadband internet access.

The OCC has called on Premier Kathleen Wynne to commit funds to develop and expand broadband internet access in rural areas.

President of our local chamber Jerry Walker says businesses in Haliburton County are becoming dependent on internet access, and it’s a necessity for doing work in today’s economy.

The letter sent to the Premier addresses ways to ensure all communities in the province are able to compete in the global economy.
