As a subsidiary of Elgin Community Futures Development Corporation (ECFDC) elginconnects consists of a large number of stakeholders representing a wide variety of community sectors throughout the County of Elgin and the City of St. Thomas.

Responding to a critical need for greater information and communication technology in St. Thomas and Elgin, elginconnects has undertaken the development of a comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure including the establishment of a new web portal or “one-door” information and services centre, broadband access and affordable high-speed internet to all residents. Through innovative partnering between public and private organizations and groups across the county, elginconnects is an electronic infrastructure project and is leading the way toward greater economic growth, increased business opportunities, unlimited access to regional, provincial, federal and global services and information and will provide a wealth of residential services and resources.

With this initiative elginconnects is dedicated to linking and enhancing local governments, education, health and social services, libraries, tourism, the agricultural sector, business and industry.

This new smart community infrastructure and service will connect our communities to each other and to information and resources from around the world.
