Detailed Information

ESIS is an incorporated not-for-profit internet society formed with the goal of bringing affordable and reliable high-speed internet service to Crawford Bay and surrounding central Kootenay Lake communities.

Established in 2005 by local citizens who recognized the growing need for broadband access and its importance to community sustainability and growth, ESIS is a grassroots organization mandated to plan, build and operate a community-owned network delivering last mile connectivity to area residents, visitors, businesses and organizations.  ESIS embodies the spirit of a co-op, working on behalf of its membership, with a strong commitment to the public trust and operations firmly grounded in local expertise and regional cooperation.

Today, with a growing network that now extends well beyond Crawford Bay to serve the broader Kootenay Lake community, ESIS has over 600 subscribing households, businesses and organizations, and is now in the process of deploying fiber-to-the-home as recipients of the CRTC Broadband Fund.
