Connecting Families Program
We participate in Connecting Families, an initiative of the Government of Canada. Our participation builds on the work of our existing Rogers Connected for Success program, which helps families receiving the maximum Canada Child Benefit (CCB) and the maximum Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) access the digital world starting at $9.99/month + taxes.
