    We have great news for our membership,

    CanWISP entered into an agreement with JMHI Insurance Group Inc. in March of 2018.  JMHI was approved to create a tailored insurance product for CanWISP.  It is here… as a value-added service to your membership you can now access a customized insurance solution with CanWISP only Discounts!

    JMHI has worked with Travelers of Canada to produce unique Insurance package offerings just for CanWISP members.  It offers multiple levels of coverage based on your size and operation to ensure you only pay for what you need.  The greatest part is the special discounts only offered to our members… 10% off of your cyber coverage plus an additional 10% off your towers!

    JMHI is currently licensed in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan and has a strategic alliance with a Brokerage to service Quebec.  They are currently working on B.C. and are more than happy to work with other Brokerages to ensure you get the CanWISP coverage and rates.

    JMHI is run by Eric Gaudrault who is the Owner, President and Principal Broker.  Eric did a great Insurance for WISP presentation at our last CanWISP Conference in Lac-Leamy.  Personally servicing over a dozen ISP/WISPs and having worked in the Telecom Industry for several years, Eric has a Niche skillset to effectively address our membership’s insurance needs.

    CanWISP has hired Nordicity to assist CanWISP in developing its submission to the ISED Spectrum 2018-22 Consultation process. Click ISED Consultation
    for more details on the Consultation.

    An eSurvey is an essential part of the research needed to better understand current and anticipated spectrum needs. Nordicity will develop a Research report that will be appended to CanWISPs submission.  If you are a member of CanWISP your designated contact should have already received a personalized email invitation.  If you are not a member of CanWISP we would still appreciate your input (click here).

    The Board strongly encourages the participation of your firm in this survey as the higher the participation, the more credibility CanWISP's submission will carry with ISED and the better the chances for Canadian WISPs to secure much needed spectrum.

    It is essential that each firm designate a single respondent and that the respondent uses a single machine for responses. This will avoid duplicated effort and ensure consistency. This will also enable the respondent to start & stop the questionnaire at any time during the survey period.

    Important note: The survey period will be only 6 days from November 21 to November 27, so please fill out the survey in the next few days.

    Your participation will be greatly appreciated.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
