JeM CAP Site for Jeddore-Musquodoboit Area

The new "JeM" Community Access Program is the latest addition to a growing number of Eastern Nova Scotia CAP sites, including Eastern Passage, North Preston, Lawrencetown, Tangier, Sheet Harbour, Country Harbour, Sherbrooke, Canso, and Antigonish. Moser River CAP is in the developing stages. Email for more information.

CAP Sites Explained

The JeM CAP Site is part of a nationwide federal initiative of up to 10,000 such sites supported by Industry Canada to bring computer technology, learning & internet access to Canada's communities. Nova Scotia now administers its CAP site program through the Technology and Science Secretariat.

In many cases, CAP sites are manned by volunteers from the community, who work towards self-sufficiency for the site. A CAP site derives its revenue by a combination of community service offerings such as renting computer time, workshops, seminars and Internet access, usually for bare bones fees. Please support your local CAP site!

The JeM CAP Site in Jeddore-Musquodoboit welcomes inquiries from residents or visitors in the area. Toni Heatley, Coordinator of the Jeddore Musquodoboit CAP Site, has kindly provided us with the following article which outlines the services offered in Jeddore and Musquodoboit.
