The objective is to analyze the extent to which access to high-speed internet, or lack thereof, serves as an enabler/barrier to the adoption of various PA applications. 

The study is funded by Agriculture and Agri-food Canada’s (AAFC) Innovation and Growth Policy Division (IGPD).

Updates on this project will be posted on*R2B2project.ca*site.
