E-Centres are the
distribution point for network access in each Smart First
Nation from where the local organizations, programs and the
homes receive their connection to the high speed data network.
Local network technicians maintain the network hardware, provide
technical training, assist local clients with computer needs,
office LANS, and help local consumers and organizations install
cable modems and network cards in their computers.
Managers are organizing
training (introductory, multi-media, technical) and deliver
hands-on introductory sessions from the Centres. Introductory

like e-mail - and computer applications. Public sessions will
be augmented by focussed technology transfer workshops with
community partners - teachers, health professionals, police,
and Band employees. Read more...
