VolNet is a federal government initiative administered and funded by Industry Canada to improve the voluntary sector's access to information technology and to the related skills and tools available to help it play a stronger role in Canadian society. VolNet's goal is to offer Internet connectivity, including computer equipment and internet skills development and support, to voluntary sector organizations by March 31, 2002.
