Keewaywin First Nation

Chief John McKay is the elected leader of Keewaywin, which is located 225 km northeast of Red Lake. Its population consists of 622 on-reserve members and Oji-Cree is the community language.

Chat and E-mails are the most popular use of ICTs in Keewaywin. "Communication has been the biggest impact from ICTs," said Raymond Mason, E-Centre manager. "It’s opened a lot more communication between community members and the outside world."
Telehealth and videoconferencing are two ICTs that could create more of an impact on the community as they are used more, Mason noted.

Keewaywin is connected to a T1 service from the Bell Canada digital microwave radio network. They operate their local cable system to connect all their offices and homes to broadband services.
