2006 Summit 
Strategic Use of Information and Communication Technology for Communities 
February 24-26, 2006   
February 23, 2006 - First Nation Pre-Conference Sessions) 
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 

Communities around the world are taking advantage of the Internet to improve
people's lives. Strategic use of information and communication technologies
(ICTs) is helping create social and economic change in health, education,
culture, and to increase civic engagement. But the benefits are not evenly
distributed. "Digital divides" persist in urban and rural communities, among
First Nations and others.

The 2006 Summit will bring together a powerful mix of community leaders,
technology service providers, business, government, researchers, and
non-profit organizations that are engaged in using ICTs for development. The
diverse program will reflect the local, regional, national, and
international make up of the organizers, presenters, and delegates. It will
also reflect the organizers commitment to provide delegates with tools that
are readily applied to local community projects.   

Please visit http://www.2006summit.ca and register now - seating is limited.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
