What is the «Collectivité ingénieuse de la Péninsule acadienne»?

The Collectivité ingénieuse de la Péninsule acadienne (CIPA) inc. is a non-profit organization, composed of fifteen regional community partners who work at the development and implementation of a societal project.

The CIPA’s main goal is to promote the integration of information and communications technologies (ICT) into rural communities.

Located at the Centre du Savoir de la Péninsule acadienne, in Paquetville, the CIPA has hired over 35 new employees who have put in place its organizational structure and logistics. CIPA and the various participants have implemented “a sustainable rural development model, adapted to the socio-economic reality of our francophone rural region.” The model is composed of a series of population empowerment mechanisms, a system of infrastructures and computer services that promote collaboration among partners, a measurement and evaluation plan and a national and international communication system.
 
The project also encompasses a complete range of services related to the main aspects of community life. Institutions and the general public therefore have access to computer services that will lead to the development of various sectors of activity such as healthcare, education and training and economic and municipal affairs. It also offers users access to municipal and government services.

 
This major initiative by the national Smart Communities Program (Connecting Canadians) has led to other opportunities, such as CIPA being selected by the province of New Brunswick to manage the important project of broadband access for rural New Brunswick communities. The broadband pilot program’s goal is to help rural and northern communities in the province gain access to high speed Internet.

 
CIPA has also taken steps with other francophone communities in New Brunswick and at the national and international levels in promoting the implementation of a rural, sustainable and exportable development model.
 
The Acadian Peninsula’s smart community model offers an entire array of services related to the main aspects of rural life. Automated services and solutions favouring the development of local communities’ various sectors of activity are therefore available for businesses and for the population at large.
