Internet Connectivity

We are pleased to announce that OLS will receive up to $460,000 in Connectivity Funding from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for the 2022/2023 fiscal year (April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2023).

As in previous years, distribution of the grant will be based on the following priority criteria:

  • Currently participating libraries serving a population under 20,000 will be reimbursed 100% of their eligible connectivity costs. Eligible connectivity costs are based on historical reimbursement amounts, with increases to internet costs covered on a case by case basis as funding allows and
  • Currently participating libraries serving a population over 20,000 will be reimbursed at a percentage to be determined as funding allows.

Reimbursement process:

In order to expedite processing, please submit your reimbursement request via our new online form.

Reimbursement requests must be received by January 13, 2023.  There will be no extensions or exceptions.  Payments will be calculated for the 12-month period, and reimbursed by January 31, 2023.
